1. Welcome to the new Styleforum!

    We hope you’re as excited as we are to hang out in the new place. There are more new features that we’ll announce in the near future, but for now we hope you’ll enjoy the new site.

    We are currently fine-tuning the forum for your browsing pleasure, so bear with any lingering dust as we work to make Styleforum even more awesome than it was.

    Oh, and don’t forget to head over to the Styleforum Journal, because we’re giving away two pairs of Carmina shoes to celebrate our move!

    Please address any questions about using the new forum to support@styleforum.net

    Cheers,

    The Styleforum Team

    Yes, with some old knifes from my mother. I didn't use any clamp, watched two youtube videos and just went at it without thinking too much. Positive: The knifes are sharper than ever. Negative: I didn't always keep the angle, so the bevel isn't that even. For the paring knife, some parts of the knife are discoloured because I think I almost layed it flat for one stroke. So yeah, far from perfect, but very pleased with the cutting abilities. I'll have to be more careful with more precious knifes.
