Thread: Best way to even out a blade.

  1. #1

    Best way to even out a blade.

    Well awhile back I was sharpening my Kanemasa E-series 210mm and my bro came in and started talking to me and needless to say I slipped and now my edge is uneven at the heel. So what is the best way to even it out? Or Should I just send it out to Dave? Thanks again.

    Well it'd be an easy fix for Dave but it if you are confident in sharpening I say try to fix it. If you took too much off the heel, you have to take off an equal amount off of the rest of the blade basically. Simple fix but it might be difficult depending on how uneven it is. Hope that helps. ryan

    You probably can sharpen it till it is corrected, but if there is a lot to fix that can be pretty tedious task.
    A more aggressive approach would be to breadknife the edge until it is even but I am not sure if this is a very good solution.
    Sending it out to get fixed may be the better option.

    I was just thinking the same thing. You must of been grinding a bit at very uneven angles at all different spots in order for something like that to need "fixing".

    Well I was using a 1k or 1.2 k stone and wasn't paying a whole lot of attention and put my full weight behind it but if I were to say maybe 2-4 mm I'm guessing on that but I just would like to see it back to normal.

    Yes, I think a picture would help a lot to see what you are referring to.

    Even on a DMT XXC, one stroke with a lot of weight behind it is not enough to ruin a bevel to where it needs some major repair. Of course it would scratch the bevel shoulder and not look the cleanest(as you see the mistake) , but it shouldn't be enough to fubar anything at all.

    2-4mm is A LOT. if your 1k stone can remove that so quickly, i'd suggest you post the brand name over in this thread.

    Sorry but only thing I have is a fixed web cam on my laptop I'll see if I can get a picture or not. But as for the amount I'm giving that a full estimate on my part. Odds are I will just send it to Dave seeings how I'm very lacking in the rough stones. But thanks everyone.
