    First time for tip repair

    Dropped my knife in the sink today--it came back out without a tip. Made me plenty cranky, but it wasn't as bad as expected to fix. Not perfect, but at least it's pointy again.

    Very nice Lucretia! I've been putting off fixing a broken tip myself and seeing this makes me want to go fix mine.

    Well done!

    from the pictures.. I just realized that the Kasumi patters are not mirrored or identical on the other side of the knife. All along I assumed that they are.

    Great job. It's such a feeling of accomplishment to fix a broken tip.
