1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    Fok on behalf of the entire Styleforum team

    Diamond grinds away metal. The purpose of the steel is to realign the edge, not to actually sharpen it. When an edge has become dull from repeated use--when actually metal has been ground away from use--then you have to make a new edge by grinding one on a stone.

    i guess they want people to buy new knives more frequently.

    Doubt it, they have a lifetime guarantee. They will also refurbish any knife free of charge. All you have to do is send it to them. You pay the postage out to them, they pay the return. I've done it three times (one bent tip and two broken tips). Hell of a deal.
