    How much of the edge got cooked? Temper-affecting heat won't carry far along the edge. If it needed to be done, it would not be impossible to shorten the knife, though the resulting profile could be a personal thing.

    I have no idea (metallurgicaly speaking) what is going on inside this knife. Chances are the edge will be softer here due to the reversal of the heat treatment. the bevel of the knife is bright blue for the first 3 cm. It may be possible to sharpen this out over time, but I really don't know how deeply the heat affected the blade.

    Based on the above, you might also hesitate to sell them any knives in the 1st place!

    what do you mean 'fix' it? fix the overheated steel? or just aesthetics on the outside? im very curious to find out if this could be fixed beyond the aesthetics.
