Typically these will not hold an edge because they can not be hardened, so you can probably reshape the face of the blade with a file.

+1 on the file.
Got an Atoma plate? DMT XXC? Harbor Freight Story nearby(a 1x30 belt sander is like $40).
Do you have much use for a Western Deba? Looks like it would save you a lot of bother and time if you just used your knife for that
Ty for all the feed back. The blade in the pic. that everyone was asking about I was using to set the focus, for the primary knife. It was the first damascus I bought off of e-bay. It is a dagger that needs to have a handle put on.
I have thinned this down, and it needs more. When I bought a 600 stone I didn't think I would need a lower one. I have yet to put a edge on this yet, but will do soon. It looks really rough atm. Ty all for your help and suggestions.
My friend took another knife to do a saya for before doing a larger one. Tanaka santoku I bought quite a while ago that doesn't fit in my knife carrier.
Will post pic's soon
