    Looked through the stickys and couldn't/didn't find the answer. Just picked up a 2nd hand NMFSH with some edge damage, was wondering if Busse offered a sharpening/spa service and if so what would it cost me and what is the turn around time? Debating on who I will send it to to fix and would like some options. (My usual stuff goes to REK, just don't have the time to do it myself..)

    I don't have it yet but here is what I'll be dealing with:

    No spa service (as in re-coating or custom mods), but they will sharpen your knives.

    I stand to be corrected but as I understand it those chips and dings in the edge are all covered by the warranty. You send it in to the shop and they will sort it out.

    You would have to call to be sure, but two years ago when I sent my SOB in I had it back in two weeks.

    Not sure how recent the changes were made but I emailed the shop a few weeks ago and that was the response I received. The Custom Shop is closed for the time being but sharpening services are still offered.

    Unfortunately, the Custom Shop has been closed to customer requests for at least a couple years, with no end in sight (according to Jerry). :(

    Hi Greg.

    For top notch sharpening you may want to look (if I may be so bold as to mention a non Busse shop), to Murray Carter at Carter Cutlery. For those concerned, I own one Carter Neck Knife, and many, many, many, many, many, many more than that in Bussekin .

    Andy the Aussie is up the road apiece in Sydney. Perhaps he could give you a lead in your area. Good luck.

    I posted an "I'll take it" on that one this morning and then found out it was already sold. Congrats on that score!

    I didn't "want" to buy it. It had been up for a couple of days and scrolled over it a few times until finally my brain said "WOULD YOU JUST BUY THAT DAMN KNIFE ALREADY!!!!". Lol!

    A couple of minutes on a coarse stone would remove those little dents, which look to be about 0.3mm deep. or invest in a harbor freight 1 inch belt sander and run it across a course belt. 4-5 passes on each side at 20dps would likely remove those dings. That many passes on a coarse belt will not heat the edge either. finer belts heat the edge faster needing more care.

    .....nope sorry I can't help. I swapped messages with a guy up in BrisVegas that offered a full sharpening service about a specific job but he stopped replying.
