    Yes, Madison.
    He once sent me (unsolicited) a Tops brand liner lock folding tanto that he had made as sharp as I have ever encountered on a knife.
    It wasn't cheap, either. Tops is USA made, the company is owned by veterans and they specialize in blades for active duty military.
    Carbon steel - no stainless crap.
    The model he sent me has a MSRP of $210. Certainly more that I could ever afford.

    C'mon back @The Tourist . Maybe ease up on the "I'm a biker from Wisconsin who sharpens knives" in every single thread, and just bring it up when pertinent. You're still an asset to the site.
    Thatís right. Someone here upset him and he didnít feel welcome anymore.

    Iíve spoken to him on the phone many times and he is really a great guy. I wish he was back here. Maybe Iíll call him sometime and talk him in to coming back.

    Well Im not a pro but I've been able to keep mine sharp enough to carve truck loads of meat over the last 4 or so decades. I just use two stones a medium and a Arkansas white. Rarely do I even use the medium hardly ever. I touch up with a steel and when touch ups are iffy I hit my blades with the Arkansas white.


    For those who want to use stones i'll refer you to the Bearded Butchers as Im pretty sure this is the best stone video Ive seen and these guys carve meat for a living. Enjoy-

    Dittos on the V shaped thing. I used that to start and finish wiht a steel just like the gues worker showed me. As far as kitchen knives would highly recommend Victornox with the man made handles Firbrox? I have a full set and the shaprening steel. I love them to pieces Its all he buchers used around here. They are cheap..and snd sharpen easy. Last a long time. Old boy showed me a long scimitar breaking knife..he had used it dailily for 20 years to cut steaks. Still worked good enough to try to sell it to me lol. Dang old wood handle has a chip. The health goons dont like wood handles and thats why he wanted to sell it I think.

    He's in my phone contact list as well.
    I have interacted with him on another forum, but haven't in a while.
    I'll have to take care of that.
