Now you are rounding it too much. But again, cut with it and check maye this is what you want
It's definitely rounder than it once was. I'd like to have more of the original profile back, I may try to grind a touch more or natural sharpen it to try and regain as much of the original profile as possible.
Altering the profile is new to me; once you start messing around with it the more challenging it becomes to bring it back to the original profile.
Bird beaks are a common ailment in production Kit. wt. improper tip sharpening.Your tip fix is not bad,remember you can also lower the spine to meet the tip some as well rather just raising the edge to meet the spine.

I used to sharpen my tips a same shallow angles as rest of blade,I think that wt. alot of sharpening this can cause bird beaks as well.Also very dished stones can be hard on tips.
