My new TOPS knives just arrived!

Finally something went right for me today! My new knives are here!

That little Bugger is already as sharp as a barber's razor. I'm going to carry that one tomorrow!

The Sneaky Pete is just a hair off having a perfect bevel. The edge near the choil/ricasso is just faintly thinner that the edge on the tip. I'll use that one until it goes dull before I waste steel.

Great knives, give away prices and sharp edges. And polishing them just makes them more dangerous!

Having other things on my mind, I did NOT go over every 1/8th inch of each knife as I opened the box. But I did this afternoon--and found the very "tip of the tip" on the little bugger to be misshapen. It's an easy fix, but it was like getting a scratch on your new car.

Then I slapped myself a few times (SnowTao was not in the Madison area at this juncture) and I got out the stones and began to do the repair.

Then OCD overtook me, and I figured if it was sharp now, could I "touch it up" just a bit. Maybe a stone or three.

Yeah, yeah, I know...
