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
