    I don't think that knife is dead yet.

    Holy carbon steel batman! She can be saved but it's gonna take a bit of work and you won't have the exact same knife when finished.

    Send Murray an email. If you don't want to, I'll contact him for you. It needs to be fixed, and fixed properly. With that being said - she ain't dead yet!

    That's actually not as bad as I feared it would be. That knife has plenty of life, once fixed correctly.

    I see.

    The good news is that Murray has offered to repair the knife free of charge. He only asks for return shipping amount of $15. Wow what a deal! My father in law was happy but still asks me to buy a new knife as well. I've been showing him the most expensive knives as jokes to raise his blood pressure a little.

    In a few weeks my MiL is coming for a visit - I will take this thread as a warning

    Those chips are on the large side, but given the geometry of the blade it should not make a drastic difference to how the knife will behave after repair.
