    Looks like one of my line cooks knives. I sold him a global for his first knife, and he broke the tip just like that.

    I've fixed a couple of knife tips but none of them have come out with a tip this this awesome. I need to work on my tip fixing skills. Great fix!!

    Any chance you could describe your method? Did you use that sweet new wheel?

    the "sweet new wheel" got some use here... its a relatively simple process... reshape spine, reshape edge, thin, sharpen (and maybe some general cleanup somewhere in there)

    A lot of people only reshape the spine, but i find that often time the edges end up being too flat this way, so i reshape the edge a bit too

    The reshaping the of the edge is the main part I need to work on. On most knives I need work on thinning as well..I need a LOT of practice to get even close to this level. Granted I've only done three knives (one twice...my fault both times ) Great work!

    Great job, love it! In fact, you lowered the tip somewhat (who was a liitle high). Am I right, or is it an illusion?

    Outstanding work, great blending.

    When the owner pops the tip off next time... go modified kiritsuke profile on the fix.

    Glad you posted this. I broke my first tip today. Was washing a knife and dropped it in the sink. Picked it up, and the tip was gone.
