On to my dilemma. My stepson's theater group asked my wife if he could borrow a larger knife to use as a prop in his latest play. Instead of handing over one of the Chicago Cutlery, she gives out my vintage 12" Sabatier carbon steel chef's knife. :mad:
I get the knife back damaged. The handle is cracked around the center rivet, which I think I can live with. However, the blade and the handle are no longer in line. If I place the handle down on the counter, I can slide the tip of my index finger under the point of the blade. Flip the knife over, and my finger slides under to about the second joint.
So besides using the knife one last time, and then going to jail, is this repairable? I don't see any cracks in the steel. Or should I just retire this knife and start looking for a replacement? Thanks all.
