    Just a friendly heads up: your post may get you into advertising hot water with the powers that be, because your membership is not the correct level in order to offer your commercial service.

    NVM. Looks like that post has been removed.

    If I don't do it myself, I use Josh at REK (Razor Edge Knives). He's a member here under his company name. You can look him up and PM him or contact him through his web site.

    @razor-edge-knives would be my recommendation as well. His work and reputation speak for themselves, but he has a long list of satisfied customers who will chime in, too. ;)

    Me for the past 6 months or so. If not me, then Josh at Razor Edge would be my pick as well.

    REK, REK, and then probably Josh at REK. Never steered me wrong and I've sent him plenty of my screwups to fix. They all come back beautiful.

    I sharpen so I got that covered but I too have used Josh for knife mods and he is a true Craftsman.

    I sharpen everything myself, but if I ever needed mods done, Josh at REK would be the first guy I'd get ahold of.

    I have used Jason B. on a number of occasions from routine sharpening to re-profiling. Great work, easy and straightforward to deal with and reasonable prices. No reservations about recommending him.

    I sharpen my own mostly but ... I've recently been slowly upgrading my sharpening stones (long overdo) ... and life has kept me busy so ...

    I have used Jason B on a couple occasions to thin out a thick blade behind the edge and convex the edge slightly and he free hands using the stones I have been upgrading to (partial on his recommendations) ... and Jason B. does excellent work ... I was very pleased with his work ... very even grinds and a nice polished much improved edge ... I would not hesitate to recommend him.

    I have also had Josh @ REK do a special rush job on a very special Christmas gift for my nephew from my ill father ... and he was excellent to work with and he held true to his word and had the knife back in time on short notice ... so another I would highly recommend.
