Polished the Hubertus Harley Knife

This is the knife that my friend Joyce sent to me as a gift. I have never owned a real-deal German made Hubertus, and my first inclination was to polish it and never touch it. What a horrible fate for such a beautiful knife.

I straightened the edge and took it to only 4K. It slices cleanly, but has a toothy quality that makes it suitable for daily chores.

This knife was made to use!

I had that exact knife some time ago, and like a damn fool, sold it to a friend who "just had to have it". Been sorry ever since. I see them online for about two bills, the same as most quality springers.

Maybe I'll replace mine after seeing yours. Take good care of it, as someone you know will just have to have it. Huburtus makes very, very good knives.

I know, that's why I was surprised and humbled by the gift Joyce gave me.

You are indeed right about the price. This is a Solingen, Germany example, and stamped with the Harley logo, to boot. Not many of these made.

My guess is close to yours, somewhere between 200 and 300 bucks. And it's a very solid folder.
