I actually prefer the handle and clip of the first iteration of it (the Salt) to the newer one (Salt 2).

Re: Sharpmaker

So is that ALL new sharpmakers have aluminum rods now? So many thoughts and memories regarding brass of all things. From polishing ALL of it (along with bronze, copper, chrome, etc...) down in Orlando many, many years ago, to wearing it (though called "gold") later. How have we all not painfully per...

Re: I'm gonna try to make my own serrations

I would imagine that a spinning wheel - so like a cut-off wheel, or circular saw blade, that was of course as wide as the serrations you wanted to make & was steeply radiused on it's face - so coming to nearly a point in the middle of the "cutting" face, sloping down from that almost "point" to the ...

Re: I'm gonna try to make my own serrations

A picture (photo) is worth at least a few lines of words. So seeing the photo of the butter knife I did, at full size, really shows that I'm not done yet - lol. So, I'll do a little more work on it in the near future. That said, I did it to use as a "don't care" steak knife on/against plates. For th...

Re: I'm gonna try to make my own serrations

I did exactly that (make my own serrations) on a butter knife of all things about a month or so ago. Works pretty good. I used "jewlers files" diamond ones from Lowe's, the round one and the kind of oval/lemon shaped one, went every other, big/small/big/small... Looking forward to seeing what you co...
