Allow me a couple of days to sharpen and send the knife to you. If any question or requirement, just message me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
