Knife sharpening repair

Opps. Sorry to hear it's broken.

Let's see what we can do to fix it. 

In general, a knife repair for a chip or a broken or bent tip is simply about reprofiling. That is the act of removing a bunch of material to create a totally new cutting edge on your knife. 

In the case of a chip, the edge on the whole knife needs to be removed to equal the depth of a chip. In a bent tip situation, attempts can be made to straighten the tip. In most cases a new tip and profile will be cut behind where the old tip and profile was on the knife in order to repair it.
