I recently sent in my new Terayasu Fujiwara Denka gyuto to be thinned. These knives are often rather thick behind the edge and as such, they tend to wedge when cutting. Ryan did an outstanding job thinning and tuning up my Fujiwara! He communicated with me several times about his progress with the knife, and the overall process was very quick. I now have a gorgeous knife that has realized its full potential - it is razor sharp, thin behind the edge and it flies through products! I could not be happier! This is a knife my kids will fight over after I'm gone. I will definitely be sending more knives to District Cutlery and I hope to visit the shop the next time I'm in the DC area. Top notch work! Super nice people! Highly recommended!
