    It was kind of funny. A guy stopped me in the street today and asked me if I could sharpen his knife, never seen him before. My hair is very unique to this small town, so that is probably how he knows me. I guess word is getting around.

    Hey Frank! I sharpen as well and find that the work I turn out seems to bring people my way ... sounds like your work is quality. Great Job!

    I guess you could say you are on the the cutting edge of entrepreneurial capitalism.

    (no, I'm not above a cheap laugh)

    Frank, do you take mail in work?

    I have a Gerber auto that has a tanto blade with serrations that I don't want to mess up and I'd love to support your business. I have a few others I'd like done as well.

    I'll think about pics. Willie Nelson braids, but the front half is blood red.
    It's a goth thing.

    I hope you aren't "marching on" with scissors in your hands. That's dangerous.

    Actually, I'm building a flat hone right now. My last project was a variable speed belt machine.
    I love my belt machine.
