DUE TO AN INJURY I AM PUTTING KNIFE SHARPENING ON HOLD. I WILL DO LOCAL LEO, FIRE DEPT, AND SOLDIERS KNIVES IF THEY BRING THEM TO ME.

(You can also click this link to see some pictures of some knives i made.
This is my new website where I will be posting pictures of the knives i make as a hobby. i also have some videos of knives in action showing how sharp I can get them. I use paper wheels to sharpen with but i do not sell them.
BEWARE OF KNIVES THAT ARE MADE IN PAKISTAN OR PAKISTAN DAMASCUS. THERE MIGHT BE SOME INDIVIDUAL MAKERS FROM PAKISTAN THAT ACTUALLY MAKE A GOOD KNIFE BUT THESE MAKERS ARE FAR AND FEW BETWEEN. MOST OF THEIR KNIVES ARE ACTUALLY MADE FROM THE HIGH QUALITY STEEL THEY STATE IS USED IF THEY HAVE A WEBSITE. THESE KNIVES UNLIKE THE CHEAP KNIVES HAVE A MAKERS MARK. THE KNIVES THAT ARE UNMARKED ARE DONE THIS WAY TO ALLOW THEM TO SELL THEIR JUNK ON THE MANY AUCTION SITES. YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR (AND MAYBE WHAT YOU DESERVE) IF YOU BUY A KNIFE WITHOUT DOING YOUR RESEARCH. THERE WAS A MAKER FROM PAKISTAN THAT JOINED BLADEFORUMS ONLY TO LIE ABOUT THE STEEL THEY USED. THEY HAVE SINCE LEFT THE FORUM. THE NAME OF THE COMPANY MUST HAVE CAME FROM THE ABBREVIATION OF RAIL ROAD TRACK SINCE THAT IS WHAT THEY STATED TO USE IN THEIR KNIVES IN A POST THEY MADE ON THE FORUM. (Rail Road Cutlery)
ANYONE THINKING OF PURCHASING A KNIFE MADE IN PAKISTAN BETTER THINK TWICE BEFORE THEY DO. ALL YOU NEED TO DO IS DO SOME RESEARCH FIRST. NOT ALL KNIVES MADE IN PAKISTAN ARE MADE FROM THE STEEL THEY ARE CLAIMED TO BE MADE FROM. THIS MEANS THAT THE BLADE WILL NOT HAVE A PROPER HEAT TREAT AND IT WILL NOT HOLD AN EDGE.
I WAS SENT A KNIFE BY A MEMBER THAT WAS MADE IN PAKISTAN AND I WAS ABLE TO FILE THE EDGE. THE MAKER STATED THE ROCKWELL HARDNESS IS SUPPOSED TO BE BETWEEN 59-60RC. IF THIS WAS TRUE, I WOULD NOT BE EASY TO CUT THE BLADE WITH THE FILE. AFTER GETTING THE BLADE ROCKWELL TESTED, IT CAME BACK AS 52 ALONG THE EDGE WHICH IS NOT HARD ENOUGH TO HOLD AN EDGE.
THE MAKER CLAIMS THE KNIFE HAS AN RC OF 58-60 RC. I AM GETTING ANOTHER BLADE IN FROM THE SAME MAKER FOR TESTING AND I SUSPECT THE SAME RESULTS. HIS KNIVES ARE NOT MARKED SO BEWARE OF KNIVES WHERE THE MAKERS NAME IS NOT ON THE KNIFE.
I HAVE SENT OFF SOME OF THESE CHEAP KNIVES FOR ROCKWELL TESTING. MOST TEST AROUND 32RC BUT SOME HAVE EVEN BEEN AS LOW AS 25 RC WHICH IS REAL SOFT.
THESE GUYS TRY TO TALK UP THEIR KNIVES. THEY CALL THEIRSELF A KNIFEMAKER YET ALL THEY KNOW HOW TO DO IS MAKE KNIFE SHAPED OBJECTS. WHEN CONFRONTED BY ACTUAL KNIFEMAKERS THEY BECOME DEFENSIVE. THEY AVOID QUESTIONS THAT THEY ARE NOT ABLE TO ANSWER TRUTHFULLY.
DUE TO AN INJURY I AM PUTTING KNIFE SHARPENING ON HOLD UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE FOR THE GENERAL PUBLIC
WORTH READING FOR A GOOD LAUGH AT A TROLL. THE MODS HAND HIM HIS A** IN BOTH THREADS.
(HE CHANGED HIS NAME EXCEPT FOR THIS FORUM)
SOME FUNNY STUFF HERE !!! BELOW ARE 2 LINKS THAT WILL HAVE YOU LAUGHING. THE FIRST IS TO A THREAD (STARTED BY PHUCKTARD #8) THAT THE MODS LOCK ON HIM. THE SECOND ONE IS EVEN FUNNIER. (THE LAST PAGE) AND HE DOESNT EVEN OWN A STRAIGHT RAZOR. SEVERAL YEARS AGO WHEN I USED TO TALK TO THE TROLL HE TOLD ME HE NEVER STARTED SHARPENING TILL HE WAS 16 BUT TELLS THESE GUYS HE STARTED WHEN HE WAS 8. I DONT THINK A PLASTIC SPORK COUNTS AS A KNIFE SINCE THATS ALL HIS MOMMY LET HIM PLAY WITH.http://www.straightrazorplace.com/forums/advanced-honing-topics/45676-new-member-checking-3.html

Anyone who likes coffee can get their coffee fix here. http://www.hemispherecoffeeroasters.com/ Paul has some good coffee from what my dad tells me since i'm not a coffee drinker. anyone sending me a large knife for sharpening can get some coffee sent back. the bags make great packing material. Paul also helps the growers unlike some of the big companies that only care about filling their pockets instead of helping the growers. if you wish for a list of available coffee and a price list send me an email or contact the shop.
HAVE YOU EVER HAD A KNIFE SO SHARP YOU WERE SCARED OF IT? (a buddy sent me an email after getting his knfie back. here is what he said)
I just got home after midnight and opened the box. The edge is amazing. I am scared to play with that knife now. Richard - you truly are the god of sharpening. Hats off to your skill.
here is a post he made about the same knife.
I FOUND THIS POST ON ANOTHER KNIFE FORUM ABOUT MY SHARPENING ABILITY. (post #2) (i had a guy i used to talk to on the phone send me nasty emails using a fake account but he mentions something in the email that i only told him. how dumb is that?) https://www.edcforums.com/threads/anyone-here-sharpen-knives-and-straight-razors.105173/
