One of my co-workers has a Tojiro DP gyuto which he doesn't treat all that well and every so often I sharpen it for him. Because it's been a while and the edge is totally manged, I thought to myself maybe I should try and thin it a little to basically get rid of the old busted up edge and start afresh. However, when I took it to my 1200 Bester, all the bits behind the edge where I try to thin, it seems like the grit from the stone is almost stuck in the soft cladding and it looks really terrible. Anyone any ideas how to fix this? I tried to polish the scratches out and it still looked sorta crap. Should I just keep going and eventually the cladding will get worn away?
