    Alright, this thread has inspired me guys. I'm going to attempt to grind down my old masahiro gyuto into something more suji/petty shaped. Ill probably use the concrete patio out back to reshape the blade. Any reason I shouldn't use the concrete to do the initial thinning as well? And will it be worth the time to go pick up a cinderblock vs just using the patio or a curb?

    Zweifel,
    Nice work, the new spine looks nicely shaped.

    Pix please from that Masahiro. Does it need such a harsh treatment?

    Glad to have inspired something other than laughter! Very pleased with my second tip repair. Good luck with your repairs/fixes.
