A customer came into the store today and noticed my knife. He asked if he could look at it and loved how sharp it was. He then pulled out his pocket knife and let me look at it. The second he handed it to me he said "it's dull, I know, but I have never been able to sharpen a knife."
He saw my stone on the desk and asked me if I could put an edge on it for him.
I'm nothing special, never said I was, but how can someone who carries a knife not learn to use a sharpening tool?
I put an edge on it and gave it back. Showing him everything I did to make it sharp.
I never got a gun, when I was young, without knowing how to care for it. The same rang true for my knives. My father taught me how to sharpen that great tool so it would work for me as long as I had it.
It's a shame that this little guy was being used without proper care. I hope this guy learns how to tend that knife so it will give him years of service.
