    Question Fixing a Bent Tip?

    My friend lent me her Chef's knife to sharpen and I noticed the tip is bent. What is the best way to go about fixing this. Just bend it back against something hard? Use pliers? Lightly hammer it on something flat? I really am not sure what to do.

    Thanks,

    Correction. Knife says it is a STUBAI? Made in Austria. INOX, 10" chef knife. No I'll see if I can post picks.

    thats just one you need to sharpen out... fixing it is not worth the effort. It looks to just be about 1-2mm or so... is that right?

    You could try hammering lightly on something hard and pretty flat, if it breaks off lower the spine to form a new tip

    Yes, I would say 2mm max. Thanks for all the replies. Do you think my 400 Chosera would do the job? Is it just a matter of patience?
