Here are some of my edges.

The top one is a 50-dollar CRKT Razel that cuts as well as the real Graham Brothers 450-dollar one I own. And the bottom one is an (8) eight-dollar Veff fish fillet knife that is actually dangerous to handle.

are u saying that you actually charge 150 dollars to sharpen a knife? Why would somebody be stupid enough to pay that? So you put a hundred dollar edge on a hundred dollar knife? By that reasoning i can just throw the knife in the garbage and start over care to explain? W.b.

For those who do not know, no explanation is enough. For those who know, no explanation is required.

Quite the non-answer there Chico. I would think you would want to explain to people why it is worth it instead of basically telling people that if they do not already know then you are not going to help.

for ..I mighht be missing something here....but you said you sharpen knives the same whay swords re polished?I use many of the same tools that a Japanese sword polisher might. In fact, most of the "advanced adult education" I have acquired comes from the art of old world sword sharpening. (My favorite book is pictured below.)

And like formal polishers, I actually do polish, clean, stop the invasion of rust and verdigris and render the edge to four-star uptown girl keenness

Looking at the pic of the razel...all I'm seeing is a mirror polished edge, which I see on every knife I see in the hands chefs who use japanese kitchen knives.
You can not equate sword polishing with what's on that razel..thats a polished edge-even if you did use natural japanese waterstones, it's still just a sharpened edge thats been polished. barbers who use straight razors strop their edge to polish it also.

for reference, here's a link to an sword polishing site:
