How long did you wait?

I sent my delica 4 off to get sharpened Friday and it got there today. On average, how long of a wait is it to get it sharpened and sent back to north Carolina. I miss my knife haha.

I'm using the freehand bench stone method with a Smiths Combo Sharpener. And I suck at it. But I don't plan on sending it back ever time, I plan on buying the sharpmaker when ever I get some extra money.
