As much as I like GEC, I’ve acquired a number of other brands. Here is my Queen made Trestle Pine Knives “Topper”. It is one of my most carried, if you’ve seen some of my other posts you’ll know I’ve got a thing for caplifters. When I got it, I really should have sent it back. The blade and lifter were loose and the Sabre grind was so thick it was like trying to slice with a splitting wedge. The screwdriver was also too thick. I decided to try an fix the issues myself. I pressed and peened, ground and reshaped. Perhaps all the effort I put in makes me appreciate it more?
If you're wielding the sharpest tool in the shed, who's going to say that you aren't...?
