The chip SG stone made

<< < (2/2)

SHARPCO:
Thank you all. I'll try to stay longer on the #1000 SG wheel(dressed by #400 diamond plate).

Stickan:
Hi all,
I was reading john.jcg's answer about micro craks which I am certain is the main reason.

"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."

Knives with powder steel tend to have this kind of breakout more than knives with stainless steel.

The main reason I checked the forum today was to wish all a great and sharp weekend!

Sincerely,
Stig
