Not sure about anyone down in tupelo. But there is a couple around the border memphis area. Now if I,m visiting grand kids there in ripley ms. But if you find someone close that might help ,, but I say get it pro honed you don't need that kind of distraction, remember that feeling when you got it? They will get it back for you till you can hone well ,, and if it don't shave well at 8 k it is not going to be any better farther up the grit. Tc
