Allow me a couple of days to sharpen and send the knife to you. If any question or requirement, just message me at email@example.com.
My blades are made from carbon steel not stainless steel, it gives my knives an unbeatable sharpness. I prefer carbon steel for it ease to sharpen, the fine edge it takes and the beautiful patina that will develop. You do, however, need to give carbon steel knives just a little extra care to keep them in top shape. There are trade-offs in everything.
The knife is polished using whetstones. It will be easier for your to maintain it or to improve my work. For Sharpening service please contact Scott from www.sheffieldknifesharpening.com
