Besides what Zig said... if you look at the second picture... one would have to work the bolster as well as the blade. That will be a bear to make present at all reasonably. Can it be fixed... sure! Is it worth the time, energy, and frustration ... probably not. It is a relatively cheap knife...

Rain and more rain = a great wicked edge kinda day….. : - )

First off I made a handle for that saw blade knife for that lady from sat.

Jonathan’s big cleaver came next in line.

Next I ground out the big chips in the long Messermeister german knife and got it ready for the WE.

Scissors were next in line and the 3 remaining knives for that customer.

Please comment on all and everything you think i should know or need to know.

Recliner came next.

Good luck to everyone – see you thur. at Whole Foods Fare. - vid is like 18 mins. today.

Nice work :woohoo: You are well on your way. Will this be a partially serrated or fully serrated blade?

Opps, (just kidding) - Yes, I doubt it's worth the time.

In spite of all misgivings( I wasn't sure if it was going to be practical to repair although I do not have a belt sander)I do serious re-profiles with the Tormek but it is not fast) the result is very good for the repair blade & the handle.The blade repair looks like its a carving knife so it will work.
I think it was damaged by teenagers at a BBQ opening beers you should throw in a bottle opener!
The photos were good but sometimes you have to have the knife in your hands to really see what is possible.
I suppose that with these knives it will get you brownie points which will be good for business.

The handle looks nice. What does the other side look like. Might be nicer if you could use different fasteners. Or, to make it easier on the hands, countersink the ones you have on there now. Are you going to finish the wood with something? What kind of wood is that?

The Messermeister, well it is much, much better, but the deal with the scallops will make the edge weird...and the recurve..
Well I guess it will cut well enough ..
for whacking weeds...
:S :silly:
Not being critical of the work you did so much as commenting on what you had to work with to begin with.
Seriously, I would assign it to garage and yard duties.. But then, I would have pitched it to begin with.

Maybe the customer will not care. Anyone that does that kind of damage to a knife is not likely a blade expert.

Would you tell us what you are charging for the repair?

Tuffy,
I am very grateful for the video of the scissors. :P I have been wondering since you said that you use your portable Dremel? You said in the vid that you use a little extra care for the nicer scissors? I would love to know what that is? :huh:
Next question for you? Are you still happy with your new way of doing the serrated knives? I believe you got the hone from CKTG? I believe you have the DMT files for serrated at least I think I remember you saying you have them? Do you still use them for small serrations or just use the hone completely?
I am trying to make myself portable as well. :whistle: If I stay on track I too should soon be doing the local Farmers Market? There are also a few more in the surrounding towns that I would like to try and get in? ;)
As always thank you so much for taking the time to help! And as my new friend always says "Good Luck" :cheer:

Very nice job on that wrecked knife.
The handle came out great, but as mentioned, I would've counter sunk the hardware if possible.

Great job on the Messermeister... if they use it properly (although the damage suggests they don't) sharpening into the scallops isn't that big a deal.

Handle looks good too. My .02... I'm not sure countersinking the screws is that big a deal... if it was used in a "high use" environment, it would matter... but I suspect this knife probably gets used for a few minutes and put away. Certainly better that what they had haha.

Thanks for the followup.
