Yea, I guess your right someone could do that, and say the knife possibly wasn’t used lol. I think I was looking at it like this;Evil D wrote: ↑Tue Nov 27, 2018 2:06 pmMaybe I'm full of myself but if I'm selling a used knife that I've sharpened and put a bevel on myself, I consider that a selling point over the factory edge. I don't mean to sound like I'm calling you out or anything, I just honestly can't see any positive selling point of putting a "factory" bevel on a used knife unless it were to use that as a selling point so you could say "factory bevel/sharpened/etc" as a way of suggesting the knife is newer than it is. Something like that is really more valuable to collectors anyway, so if I were selling a used knife I would consider my own reporfile/sharpening job as a positive selling point over a factory bevel, as I've already done the work of sharpening past any burned steel from the machine sharpening and edge retention will likely be better as a result. Depending on the knife and bevel I would even consider applying a bevel angle of the buyer's choice and using that as a selling point.
Anyway, I hope I didn't come off as a prick, the whole idea just sounded fishy. If that wasn't your goal then I'm glad to be wrong.
“Well used PM2 for sale, just resharpened by Spyderco to factory specifications”
No factory edge is gonna hide that. There are a few small chips in the G10, scratches, the Torx screws for the pocket clip show usage.
