    Sharpen with a file until they are gone.

    Yeah you can do it with a stone but it will take a while. I had chips that were much deeper (caused by a sharpener) I used a fine file and it took about 30 minutes to get rid of and left me with a razor Sharp blade.

    Yes, but there are better ways. Do you have any photos of the blade in question?

    I'd be willing to take a crack at fixing the blade for you if what you are talking about it minor.

    Post a couple of pics and let's see what you are dealing with here?

    Do you mean flaking, if so the metal is not worth the money you paid for it......sounds as though it was over cooked.....

    I'd use a coarse stone. Yeah, a belt sander and files work, but I don't like putting power to my blades, and I feel like a file is just too aggressive. This coming from a guy who very lovingly hones straight razors with a 20k grit waterstone.

    Patience is a key element in getting and maintaining the best edge. Also, whatever you're cutting that does that to your blade, stop it. I've only seen that kind of damage from someone trying to saw through wiring.

    bad steel........

    I have knives that are right out of the box, i'll finish the edge on white ceramic, and when held to the light I'll see chipping in the blade, no matter how or what you do, if its a bad heat treat job the blade is junk. and will continue to flake or chip.........If the knife were any good would it have been thrown away........

    I think the guy throwing it away just didn't know it could be fixed.

    A lansky or smith 300 grit diamond stone will work wonders and really wont take long. If you get either one of the systems you will have a perfect angle as well. Just be sure you go with the diamond stones. Then after you get it where you want it with the course. The fine will really finish off the edge
