Oh, it's so ****************ing sad that I have to be without a knife for a week every 5 years so I can have it professionally sharpened and maintained for free.
So sad. Life is HARD. Everyone should pity me and my knife woes.
Have you ever seen one of these?
Sending out your knife to get sharpened is sort of like sending your strat to Fender to get tuned or returning your car to the dealership to get it filled with gas, its sort of absurd. I could understand if it needed to be reprofiled or needed major amounts or work but other than that......
To be fair though if you are only sharpening your knife every 5 years you obviously dont use it but i cant understand going thru the hassle of sending your knife in when in the time it took to read this you could have sharpened your knife.
