    Sharpening Services?

    I have several knives that I've customized (acid stonewashing, titanium anodizing, etc.), and I don't trust myself to put a top-notch edge on them. I'm looking for a gleaming, polished edge like I've seen people achieve with the Wicked Edge and paper wheels. I'm not interested in spending the money and time to learn how to do this correctly, either.

    I searched for local and mail-in sharpening services. I took one knife to a well regarded store in SoCal, and they didn't mess the knife up, but the edge isn't as nice as what I've seen some of you accomplish. I found one place online that is located in San Diego County (Sharpening Shack) that says they do Wicked Edge, but I've emailed and called over the course of 3 months and they've never responded to either type of message. I'm not going to mail anything to them, obviously.

    Can anyone recommend an option for me? I'm willing to pay for perfection.

    Thanks!

    John

    Everything I've read says that Richard J is very good.

    Thanks guys--I emailed him earlier this week and he's still recovering from his maladies and not back in the swing of things.

    Yeah, I saw some posts that he was in and out of the hospital some and dealing with issues. I thought he had someone covering for him.

    If you want a really nice looking finished product, it might be best to wait for him to get back into it.


    Did he give you an ETA?

    I think a few weeks or so--nothing definite.
