It was kind of funny. A guy stopped me in the street today and asked me if I could sharpen his knife, never seen him before. My hair is very unique to this small town, so that is probably how he knows me. I guess word is getting around.

Hey Frank! I sharpen as well and find that the work I turn out seems to bring people my way ... sounds like your work is quality. Great Job!

I guess you could say you are on the the cutting edge of entrepreneurial capitalism.

(no, I'm not above a cheap laugh)

Frank, do you take mail in work?

I have a Gerber auto that has a tanto blade with serrations that I don't want to mess up and I'd love to support your business. I have a few others I'd like done as well.

I sent him a dozen or so several months ago, he did a fantastic job.

I'll think about pics. Willie Nelson braids, but the front half is blood red.
It's a goth thing.

I hope you aren't "marching on" with scissors in your hands. That's dangerous.

Actually, I'm building a flat hone right now. My last project was a variable speed belt machine.
I love my belt machine.

Hmm. Works for me.



$1.00 per inch for most single edges. $2 per inch for thick blades like a machete. $3 per inch for bayonets. If you are not sure, just guess, not a big deal.
Scissors are $20.00 for bevel edges, $25.00 for convex salon shears.

You can pay me with paypal, or a check, or a money order. Whatever you like.

The easiest way for ME when it comes to shipping goes like this.
You go to the post office and get a shipping box. You put your knives in it and pay for the shipping. You also pay for a return shipping label, you put that in the box with the knives.

I get the box, open it, sharpen the knives. I take the prepaid return label from the inside and put on the outside of the box. I put the knives inside, seal it, give it to the post office. They send it back to you.
This way is not perfect for everybody. I can do it how ever you like, not a problem.

Yeah, I think that was me.

All of my friends here, and all of my family, and all of my creepy goth friends said that "franks sharp things" was too creepy. :crying:
Stupid people.
