    Blade Regrinds

    I haven't been able to get in touch with Tom Krien - anybody know of any other quality knife makers/smiths that will reprofile/regrind a knife blade? Any pictures of their work?

    Is this a knife made by Tom Krien or is it manufactured by a major company like Benchmade, Cold Steel or Spyderco?

    If it is mass produced, the factory may do it for you free of charge.

    If it is custom made, try googling the Knifemaker's Guild and see if anyone is in or near the Cincinnati area and try contacting them to see if they can help you.

    Good luck.
    God bless our troops!

    It's a mass production SOG - I know they'll sharpen it for me - they won't narrow the profile down for me though.

    Tom just sent me an email actually, so I'll be running with him :)

    Thanks for the advice about the guild, didn't know there was one.

    Tom has probably been very busy lately due to the fact that he's now solely in charge of K9 knives. Recently I've been thinking about buying a Kershaw shallot and getting it reground by him.

    I thought the K9's were a joint effort? Did Tom buy the other fella out, or did he walk away from them?

    I'd like to get a K9 by summer if all goes as planned.

    It started as a joint project (Tom Krein & Dan Koster). On june 25th Tom posted this in the K9 forum:

    Now is probably as good a time as any to announce that I will be taking over the reigns of K9 Knives. Dan and I talked prior to him going on his Boy Scout trip and we decided that I will be the Sole Owner of K9 Knives...

    Dan simply has too many irons in the fire with teaching, architect work, and Koster Knives. Dan was a HUGE help getting K9 Knives up and running! Not sure I could have done it without him! Dan will also continue to be available for consultation!! Its not like he is going anywhere. He will still be working on his knives in my shop, so I will see his ugly mug pretty much everyday!
