You need to "sell" this CCK to the guy that sharpened it for whatever the landed price is for a new one.

Otherwise you need an XXC diamond plate (which you can also use to flatten the new stones you are getting). With that amount of damage you are going to have to thin behind the edge and re-establish the edge. Pretty sick, but nice project if you want the positive perspective.

Throw the honing steel back into the knife block and use your highest grit stone to touch it up when needed. I think people tend to do more damage with a honing steel than good.

Holy smokes that's messed up. Besides the fact the bevel is messed up, is that blue patina or did that knife came back from him/her with that blue shine.

Yeah, my gosh....that's horrible.

It will take a lot of grinding to remove that much metal.

Either something like the DMT XXC or a really coarse stone. The 500 will work, but it will take a lot longer than something like a XXC DMT plate.

Like others said, he should reimburse you for a new cleaver....that's just awful.

Yeah get your money back and have him pay for the cleaver. Order a new one and if you ever need it sharpened in Europe, I'd gladly do it for you.

Thanks for the reply lads. The guy that "sharpened" it was less than helpful when I went back and was only offering to re do it. Safe to say I won't be allowed back into the shop any time soon! :lol: It's not an overly expensive knife so it'll give me my first sharpening project!
