Not sure this will intrest most of you as you own higher end knives, but I want to pose a question for your input and opinion.
I am currently building a website for my knifemaking and sharpening business, and have been looking at several Older knives on ebay that are in fine shape but the handles need replaced.
Would a name brand knife, pick one, mostly of the Eouro line that has it's handle replaced with a nice wood or synthetic handle be of intrest to any of you?
I've done this in the past and sold quite a few over the years to kitchens that I sharpen for.
Just wondering if this could be another revenue source for my knife business.
While I Love to cook, Im no Chef, nor do I work in the food service field. So Im curious would a Vintage knife that has been professionally rehandled, refinished and sharpened be of intrest to folks? Do you feel there is a market for this?
Also should the patina be cleaned off the blades and taken back to as close to factory as possible (machine finished), or leave the patina?
I appreciate any and all input!
