    Aritsugu Kiritsuke Repair

    I got in this Aritsugu Kiritsuke with a broken tip, chips in the edges, with about a 45deg micro bevel. This maker's knives are among the hardest to sharpen let alone do repairs to and this one challenged me as usual. I wasn't to do a full refurb here, just a tip repair and sharpening so it's far from perfect, what do you think?

    Nice job Dave. Looks so good, I'd think it was photoshopped if it wasn't your work. Can I ask what you did to straighten the front edge back in line?

    I just ground down the hump and then took a tad bit off up near the top corner to make it look flat/even(ish). It'll pass.

    It would pass for original.

    Very nice work indeed! I think it would pass for better than original.
