    Nice repair it feels good to accomplish that I know. The more you do the easier it is to see what needs to be done.

    Anybody else trying to figure out what kind of knife this is? I've never seen this profile with the German makers.

    I would think that many here that sharpen other's knives have seen major tip breaks.I like going fr. the spine,keeping as much blade edge as poss.It's better to have the spine dip,I've had some look like Santoku,making a direct arch to the edge.Use a belt & H2O.

    Good job on your first tip repair

    with sandpaper in the P120-700 I cut a straight line from the spin at 30 to 60 degree til I reach the edge. Depending on my mood I decide to restore the spine curve or not. If the tip is too low that may be easily corrected later on with sharpening.

    That's an interesting approach. Kinda-sorta like a kiritsuke tip?

    It really depends on where I want the tip to be. And the spin curve is just about aesthitics.
