    I was nowhere near it when it happened, when I went over and I actually saw it all I could say was "Hooooooooly ****!" Ach it doesn't bother me that much, it happens, not like he meant it, he just knocked it off the bench. He was very apologetic, and I guess that's part of the chance you take with fancy knives in a small kitchen. The only slight silver lining is that it wasn't my new 270 Rottman, it's way way thinner than the Kono and it would have fared a lot worse

    I could almost do a WIP on fixing it!

    I think you should. Make something positive come of this.

    What tends to bug me most is when other people do things that I see as character flaws with myself.
    I start to snap at them but usually catch myself with the thought "like I'm one to talk".

    That's so true. While I explain to someone what I find frustrating half way through I think wow that's what I do.

    Small update. After 10-15 mins this what the Kono looks like. Not perfect, it's a bit stubbier but I like it that way, makes it less likely to happen again

    From this


    To this


    Didn't lose much length, think it was a little long anyway


    Thought I'd thin it a bit more while I had the stones out anyway

    BS allergies, customers and servers both.
    Phonecalls while on cigarette break, no issue with smokers (was one), but its not free time
    servers not knowing the menu. getting a "no *whatever*" on a dish that doesn't contain it is annoying as f***
    BS allergies. So. Much. Anger.

    We got a new guy at work who whistles. Lots of Andy Griffith. Now I understand.

    Have another one. When we do events, give me a number. It irks me to no end when you tell me 85 people and 115 show up and your mad we ran out of food. Likewise, I get pissy when you tell me 100 and we cook for 100 and 60 show up. And don't do like yesterday and say we are serving a party of 150 but that could go up to 300. I don't do loaves and fishes like that other guy.

    i would really suggest grinding from the spine and then thinning the tip, until it's back how it was.

    Yes I did grind the spine. It is a bit better looking now than it was in the photo but it is going to take a long time even on my Atoma to get it like it was. I don't mind it being a little stubbier, but it's still too fat. I've been grinding it a bit here and there since these photos and it is very slow progress
