I was stunned when I heard he passed. I feel like I lost a friend and a mentor.
Many times we exchanged emails about sharpening as I own a sharpening shop in Plano TX. and he was a great help to me.

I'm not going to ask his son for a refund for the wheel that wasn't shipped. I must have been caught right in the middle
of that when I ordered and I totally understand now how it happened now.

I hope his son Daniel one day recovers from the shock and does well.
I will miss Vadim, like you said though, we still have a wealth of videos and information he left us all.

Thanks Ken for the response.

I had no idea how the business was affected.
Really sad to hear about Vadim, he taught me so much over a few years.
I knew something was wrong, just couldn't figure out what.

I just learned ( very late in finding out that Vadim passed away ) - Very sad news as we communicated many times.
That answers one question on why I didn't get any responses by email from him.

My question is this. Apparently, since he is gone I get no responses from Knife Grinders at all.
I have ordered many Tormek wheels them over the last few years.

Are they still in business?

I ordered two wheels. One they still owe me for many months now, and as you know the payments are upfront.
I can not get ANY response from them. None. Many emails I sent and no response. I have given up on getting any answers from them.

I am in need of the wheel I already paid for and I now need another.
I am afraid to try to order anything else. The website still has really old dates on them getting wheels in.

Does anyone know if it's safe to order, as every email I send goes into a black hole?
Any information about KnifeGrinders would be appreciated.

Knife Sharpening / Sharpening D2 steel knives

Has anyone here sharpened knives made with D2 steel on the SG-250 ?
I haven't done any and was wondering if the standard Tormek SG-250 wheel can sharpen
a knife like that. Thanks.
