Ah- I dropped a white steel knife . . .

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I bought a Tojiro ITK 210mm Gyuto for a friend of mine for her upcoming birthday.  She was lamenting about not having a good carbon knife so . . .   Anyway it came yesterday and while I was checking it out I dropped it.  Took 5mm off the tip and put a 1.5mm chip in the blade. 

 

So this morning I took it to my bench grinder (variable speed) and reshaped the blade while my stones were soaking.  So glad I just got that Beston 500 yesterday - it really made the job so much easier.  Thinned the blade, put the bevel on then it was on to the 1k, then the 6k then on to the strops.  I ended up with a nicer edge than stock, but I ordered her another one and will keep "shorty" I guess.  I should have taken before an after pics, but I was on a mission.

 

Moral of the story:  PAY ATTENTION

Hey man have you  ever used a straight razor by chance. Sounds like you either are a woodworker or a straight shaver.

Good save. This is one of the payoffs of knowing how to sharpen

My background is woodworking.  My favorite chisels and plane irons are Japanese and old Sheffield Cast Steel.
