Repair works

This Masamoto paring knife was very rusty as well as being blunt.
I started sharpening with Sun Tiger #240 to make a tapered edge then moved up to King #1200, Shapton #5000. Before finishing, The blade was scrubbed with rust eraser to get rid of rust, then finished with Shapton #12000.
The polished  blade is incredibly beautiful.

Oops! this chef knife was snapped from approx 1 / 4 from tip and the owner was about to throw it  out. I ground off the back of the blade with Sun Tiger #120 to make it into Santoku shape then put a new edge with Sun Tiger #240 and  moved up to King # 1200, Shapton  #5000. then finished with Shapton #12000.
Now the knife started its new life as a Santoku.

This is another repair work of snapped tip but this wasn't too bad. I created the new outline with Shapton #120. The typical humped heel of German knife was removed too to make the rocking action easier.   The new edge was created with Sun Tiger #240 and  moved up to King #1200, Shapton  #5000. then finished with Shapton #12000. Now the pointy tip is back again with a sharp and balanced edge.
