Josh at razoredgeknives.com

Sold the knife, didn't want to make a major change to the knife is I was going to sell it... thank you for the help though. I'm looking forward to a REK in the future.

Couple’a REK’d paper towel slicers in from Josh today...

He took my Infinidu down from ~.034 BTE to .015 BTE. He convexed the shoulder/bevel at my request, so it looks deceptively wider than it really is due to the polish. It was also swedge-ified.

The skink came out to see what all the REK fuss is about.

Josh also made my Southfork a LOT more Phil Wilson-like. Took this one from the low 20’s down to .008 BTE. :) Put it next to my Phil Wilson custom here for a family shot.

I’ve been meaning to post this for a few weeks..

I got lucky recently, had a shot at a Re Grind. I couldn’t be happier, or more impressed than I am.

Had a Calavera Cutlery El Patron user.. it was beat on, poorly sharpened, thrown in and out of my pocket and work bags for almost 2 years. I never liked the huge Ricasso or giant bulbous flipper tab, wanted more cutting edge , and most importantly- I wanted the knife to CUT.

Josh worked his magic ! Not only is the mod work incredible- the action is night / day better !! That knife cuts like a laser beam, scary sharp.

There are many reasons I’ll continue to send my knives to REK Knives REK Knives for mod work.

I feel pretty confident saying that Josh is one of the , if not , the best in the business. Serious skills , customer service second to none.

Thank you !!

I may have thought to keep the logo, but it was definitely your sculpting skills and creativity that got these bad boys looking slick. :)

It's been just over 2 years and this overhaul on my ZT 0640 by Josh is still my absolute favorite EDC. You knocked it out of the park with this one man!

What’s your experience with the timascus and it’s durability? I’ve been interested in maybe getting some timascus stuff.
Are those actual scratches or just the anodization wearing off?

I'd say it's just like regular titanium, but the nature of the anodization makes scratches very obvious. In this case, those are very shallow scratches but I'm a landscaper and have to squeeze between hedges and concrete walls often enough to abuse clips like that. I have other sculpted titanium clips with similar scratches but they were already stonewashed finishes so they don't look so bad. I did manage to bend this clip outwards when a taught wire I walked past ripped the knife out of my pocket, but it bent back to normal easily.

I see, ok. Thanks!
