    Help, Bent / Broke tip

    How would I go about bending the tip of this knife back to normal? How would I go about fixing the tip after the bend is fixed?

    Thank you.

    You could try bending the tip back to normal in a vise. For fixing the tip a belt sander will help a lot. Only grind the spine down to form a new tip.

    what belt sander do you recommend? i would like to manage the knives at work and I have been thinking about purchasing one. About fixing the tip, is there a video of someone grinding the way you say so I can get a visual?

    thank you

    There's various cheap 1x30" beltsanders available that will do the job (Harbor freight $40). Hold the knife vertically tip down and work the spine on the platen of the sander.

    And dip the blade in water every so often so you don't overheat the tip.

    It looks like most of that bend will come out naturally once the tip is fixed. If its a harder steel, bending the tip may lead to further damage....

    I use the side of an old flattening stone for tip repair, quite successfully.
    The difference between try and triumph is a little "umph"! NO EXCUSES!!!!!!!
