    I've spend the last 2 hours trying all kind of things using a coarse grit stone and I don't think it has improved. After a while I thought I noticed some improvement, but when I went to a finer grit stone, this turned out to be an illusion and the knife is now back to it bended shape. I guess I found the perfect excuse to buy a better knife in the future ;-)

    warping problems can not be fixed on stones... stones actually make the problems worse most of the time

    I had a knife like that and it just couldn't be fixed. That's why everyone says not be cheap when it comes to usubas

    Even duct tape won't fix that mess.
