Yesterday I worked on a customer's Misono VG10 and it had some decent chips on the edge.
I am wondering what technique you pro types out there use for a repair like this.
I had previously put 17° DPS on this knife and went to 18° this time so I was cutting a higher angle & thought
I'd clear out the chip pretty quickly. I was wrong.
I've done Shuns before and they weren't a problem but that Misono sure does a better job on their steel :o

Do you in the know just go to a HIGH angle then reset the bevel or just keep grinding away or is there a better way still?

In general I like to take a higher angle and get the chip or irregularity out and get the blade shaped like I want then sharpen. Depends on the knife though. Use your regular sharpening angle and then a higher angle in steps until you get the result you want a little bit at a time.
