Just a suggestion, now's the time to pull out all those kitchen and carving knives and get them in shape for the upcoming events. You wouldn't want anyone to cut themselves with a dull knife or need to tear off a piece of turkey or ham.

To make it more fun, lets see those blades! You know your proud of them or at least how sharp you can get them so share!

BTW I use pumice "wet" stones, hard stones, Diamond stones and a belt sharpener........ And my secret weapon is........

My Pops old razor strop from when he barbered, back when he got out the service.

So you've been challenged, break 'em out, clean 'em up, and show us your wears!

Don’t have anything old (at least that’s useful). I do however have my “no one touches these but me” knives. Inexpensive, but they hold an edge well and touch up with steel is all that’s been done lately. I do need to probably work on my boning knife, which see the most use for my prep trimming/silver skin removal.


will start with my Syderco Sharpmaker, but if that fails will bring out my KME

I have a leather strop too, but I don't use it for kitchen knives. It is for my razors. I also have a bunch of stones running from about 800 grit to 12,000 grit which take care of both knives and razors.

Some of the knives. There are more stashed around the kitchen. And one in my pocket.

nice, custom build?
This knife was hand made by Silver Stag. They only made a limited bunch I understand. Look them up on Google. They have a lot of Youtube video dems on building. These knifes are not junk but can be expensive.

I love those grips, I find them more comfortable in my hand. I have some Victorinox that I love like those of yours!

I didn't pull out the razors, Remember I said Pop was a barber back when Saturday was shave and a hair-cut day at the Barber shop. I shave with a straight razor while in the service.

Nice knives!
