    I think Corky makes the kitchen knives, doesn't he? I can't say that I have ever seen any of Corky's work first hand but, if it's anything like Dave's, they'll be wonderful!

    So, do these knives have a micro bevel? Could someone post a picture of the edge "close up". It does not look like it in the previous pictures, but I would like to know for sure. ive grown quite fond of knives without a micro bevel

    You really should talk to Dave. He does not do what I would call a "micro bevel" on any of his knives that I am aware of. He loves to talk knives, and I'm sure he would love to answer any questions you might have. As to pics, well, I tried. I don't know that I could really show what you want to see with my dumbphone, and my digital cameras and I are not communicating right now. Even then, I don't think I could show the detail you want in a pic, if your questions are not answered by previous pics. Be aware, the angle and shadows/lighting make the edge look much broader than it really is in some of these pics (especially the 2nd one and the last one). They are a very fine edge but, man, do they hold an edge! 20170111_184602.jpg 20170111_184755.jpg 20170111_184805.jpg 20170111_184901.jpg 20170111_184912.jpg

    Dave Sharpens them with a paper wheel on a grinder base. His blades are hard enough to do a lot of game.
    He offers a lifetime re-sharpening service..
