Bought a Gerber Patriot from Big Phil on here a couple months ago. Dude, did you whittle asphalt with this thing? The edge is as dull as the spine!

I tried some therapy with my old school Smith's Tri-Hone, but didn't get anywhere. Don't really have time to keep trying. Has anyone had good luck getting a knife professionally sharpened in San Antonio?

There used to be a guy at the Petro truck stop on 10E heading out of town. I don't know if he's still there or not though. He is a professional knife maker and sharpener. I think he charges $6. You can try stopping in there and see if he is still there. He did my knife a few times.

The only downside is, I asked him if it was legal to give my knife a double edge for every day carry, and he told me yea-he would even do it while I wait. Well, I have that baby put away now that I've learned otherwise.

I know there is a guy set up at every Saxet show (this weekend) but don't have any personal experience with him.

Who would buy a nicked up, scratched and dull knife in the first place?

My father taught me how to sharpen a knife with an oiled whetstone, a steel, and a leather strap.

That was about 50 years ago.

If the blade will not shave the hairs off your forearm, it is dull.

It was not advertised as nicked up, scratched, or dull. That is not the point; it was still a good deal for the price at which Phil sold it to me and I am happy with the trade.

Then why bring up the specifics of the deal and accuse the seller of "whittling asphalt" with it, if you are so happy with the trade? Just ask for info on sharpening instead of being a jerk about it.
