    Removing Chips

    So in the quest to sharpen my sharpening skills I offered to sharpen my mother in laws global santoku. I notice it has some very small chips and was wondering if there was a way I could remove them.

    How small? Usually very small chips come out all by themselves after 1 or 2 sharpening sessions where you start with a low (sub 600) grit stone. If they bother you, spend extra time on your low grit stone and remove them completely. Usually I just leave them and let them work themselves out over time.

    Aren't globals somewhat chippy?

    I haven't seen any on mine. And they used to get a good workout all the time.
