I think you did a great job on the repair. You could also have done what I did when faced with a broken kitchen slicer.

But I'm guessing your customer might not have liked it.....!

Here is a photo of a Mac knife I had to re-profile it was a heck of a lot of work especially not having a WE as yet so I did a fair amount of it on a Tormek freehand including most of the blade thinning then I did the thinning bevel at 10Ëš through to the edge refined with 1200 grit then I set a micro bevel of 15Ëšusing 1200 grit then dropped a degree until I got to 11Ëšall done on EP ; then back to the leather honing wheel on the Tormek to smooth out the graduations glad I got to keep this one.
The chef owner took a huge chip out of the middle of it on an Avocado stone the chip was about 1/2 inch deep and the profile of the stone.
I cant wait to get the WE. so here are two pictures one the repaired MAC & two a photo of a new MAC.

Thanks for posting that, it's exactly what I was trying to describe.

Ruining the temper on a blade is a high cost for a repair job! Whether Tuffy did or did not,...

I think what Tuffy is saying, is that the knife is not blued, it is Darrell's eyesight that is "off", i.e. the knife was not over heated.

We'll have to wait for the Tuffy Translator (I'm not sure what he meant either.) :dry:

Hey! I have a PDS (pretty darn sure) in translation and am willing to bet 2 :) that the translation is spot on :woohoo:

Bets to be settled upon Tuffy's verdict.

Looks great Tuffy. I am a rookie, can you quickly review how you reground the knife? Thanks. PS I like you videos.
