The chip SG stone made

(1/2) > >>

SHARPCO:
I used SG-250. The dressing is done by diamond plate(#80 >>> #400). After that, I did honing on leather wheel.

But I could find chip on the edge. Could you tell me what's wrong?  ???

jeffs55:
I am going to say that the angle is too sharp, so the blade is so thin it chipped from a faulty inclusion.

It's about 17 dps. I think it was not too low.

If grading the stone with an 80g diamond plate really leaves it that coarse, try not to grind all the way to the edge... you'll end up with large chips in the edge that you have to grind out with a finer finish.  Stop before the coarse grind reaches all the way to the edge.

That's what the picture looks like... a large 'groove' in the bevel, that leads to the chip.

john.jcb:
The main bevel adjacent to the edge appears to be extremely coarsely ground. I think that this may be leading to your problem. I see very deep grooves at 90° to the edge and I think when you sharpen the edge you end up with areas that are extremely thin and fragile.

Another possibility is if the knife has been improperly used it may have developed micro cracks which are not visible to the naked eye. These cracks can propagate during sharpening and result in the nicks you see.

I only use the 80 grit when I need rapid material removal for an already damaged knife or one where I am changing the angle.
