Not sure if this is the right area for this but I couldnt find one more appropriate. To be clear Im not advertising as Im not a gold member. Im not offering mail service. Ive thought about starting a small sharpening service for some time. The other day i was visiting with a gun dealer friend and showed him my edc with a polished bevel. He liked it so much he wanted it on his knives. As well as polishing a blade on one. Gun guys are normally knife guys and he said if i want i can put some cards in his shop so bingo. I havent however been able to find much info on an acceptable fee. How do you guys do it? Ive seen $1 per inch thrown around alot. That just isnt worth it for hand work though. Maybe on a belt sander. I use a kme sharpener with 8 hone and 2 strop progression and can produce a mirror bevel down to 1.5 um that shows only the slightest whisker marks in direct sunlight, so my work is quality. It also takes between 30 minutes and 1 and 1/2 hours depending on steel hardness, blade length etc. What is that worth? You guys have taught me well and Im confident in my work. I have a worksharp I will use if people dont want hand sharpening and also for axes, machetes, mower blades etc. Please guys help me once again so I can get this thing off the ground.
