After winning Jarrett's contest I sent him 4 knives to be sharpened. I couldn't be happier about the results. The knives sent were the scandi Esquire that one the contest as well as a Fletcher Griffing X, which had a run in with a bunch of bamboo, a WA Surls Kestrel and a stainless Ladyfinger, both of which needed a good sharpening. Jarrett does outstanding work. He let me know exactly what he did to each knife as well as why he did what he did. The final results were just awesome. All the knives came back incredibly sharp. So far I've only had the chance to use the Esquire and the Ladyfinger and both knives have preformed fantastic. The Ladyfinger is easily sharper then it's ever been and I'm more then pleased with it's performance. It's like having a new knife!
I really can't say enough about Jarrett's work. He's meticulous and pays attention to detail. I'll definitely be sending a few more his way and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him if you're looking to bring some blades back to life.
I really wish I could've gotten better pics of the work he did but here's what I was able to do. I'm a lousy photographer.
