got a couple of knives in from a friend to sharpen/repair.....they're in rough shape....here's a sample:
So I have a couple of questions...
1) last time I worked on a broken tip, everyone said to work from the spine down. How does one do that w/o creating a bevel on the spine? Grind the knife against the stone perpendicular to the stone? Would this be a good task for the steel flattening plate (#150)?
2) What's the best way to get those massive chips out? Something similar to the spine? (grind it perpendicularly on the flattening plate)
Any other thoughts? (I don't know the details of the abuse that led to this...)
I can't quite make out the brand....here's the best photo I could get of the maker's mark:
