How do you deal with this thing?
I can't grind it off even if I wanted to, because I only have hand tools (and I'd prefer not to spend many, many hours on such a knife that isn't even mine). It's already got a slight recurve to it. What I have done is ground and sanded off enough of it to fix the recurve and give it a usable heel. For future reference though, what the heck do you do?
Honestly, what's it even for? I can't even think of anything useful for it.
