Let's get the knives out.....And the sharpeners.....

Let's get the knives out.....And the sharpeners.....
Posted: 03/30/2011 8:05:27 PM
Recently a knife crossed my path that looked great. It was the Ken Onion designed Shun DM-0500. Nice looking kitchen knife. So got one for a good price off a reputable seller on eBay, but the blade arrived in a damaged state. It had several chips out of the edge and in one section the chip looked like a kid smiling with a missing tooth! i.e. the chip was a small square about 5mm. Question: Can something like a Chefs Choice electric sharpener be used to reform a badly damaged blade like this, or is it a lost cause? Thx, John Bradshaw

If the knife came out of the box with a damaged edge, the best thing to do would be to return it to the manufacturer and ask for a replacement without damage. Go online, look the manufacturer up, contact them and find out what their policy is--and follow it to the letter. The factory will very likely be happy to replace it if you are willing to pay the postage. Then, if the factory refuses to replace it (or at least repair it free of charge), a professional sharpener should be able to handle it. Don't even think about using a Chefs Choice to sharpen your expensive knives becuase over a short period of time, your knives can be damaged.

For a knife of that quality I would not risk trying to sharpen it with an electric sharpener when it has that much damage. If it was just dull, the electric sharpener would work fine. If you want to salvage this knife I would have it sharpened professionally. It would be worth it to have a professional sharpen it right and then after that the edge could be maintained with a good quality electric sharpener, such as the Chefs Choice electric sharpener. Good luck and I hope you get a lot of good use out of your knife.

Wok Problems


Hi, my name is Morgan and I'm a new member, I have a carbon steel Wok that had rust on it, so I scrubbed it down with steel wool as much as I possibly could and even after that it still had a rusty smell even when there was no visible oxidation, I heard that it's best to heat it over the stove top to dry all the water in it to prevent further rusting so I did, but it came out looking like this.
