Thai Kiwi knife & Zanussi cutting board

For several weeks now i've been doing a bit of testing in our home kitchen with a very cheap and second hand Thai Kiwi knife & a newly bought Zanussi polyethylene cutting board. Got the knife for free from one of the Chefs i sharpen for, the tip being a bit bent from prying. He bought it while on ho...

Re: Show your Paper Wheel edges

The first owner of this small Sebenza apparently thought it a good idea to use the knife for sharpening practice in his new Wicked Edge. The outcome made him sell the knife for a measly 150 Euro's to owner number two, who sent it to me with the request to tidy things up a bit and give it a bit of a ...

Re: Vintage Artus Flex knives

Personally i knew about the Flex knives only through an old German knife magazine, and i never even saw or handled one in real life before i bought these. So far and from actual hands-on experience i learned that the sheathed knife carries very comfortably as well as inconspicuously on a belt, and a...

Re: Vintage Artus Flex knives

All the knives now have the "anti-selfblunting mod" done, and have their edges carefully resharpened on the Tormek. I will probably keep 2 of these for my own collection, one is already on it's way to a US forum member, and the remaining 5 will also go up for sale. https://i.postimg.cc/kV9VG3L6/GEDC...
