There were not. But the store is denying that they did them as well.Jet B wrote:Were the serrations chipped like that before? I know I have chipped my own serrations with hard use and you can still sharpen them up but the chips still show.
It's really not that hard to learn to sharpen effectively yourself. It's actually the other enjoyable half of this knife hobby for many people.
Thanks for the heads up...had this and the full serrated delica for nearly 10 years...and I never bothered to look in to that...live and learn. I would have definitely sent it in.KBR wrote:IMO, you may just be wasting your time trying to get any kind of compensation from this store if you've already talked to them about your concerns of the poor job they did and they are denying any wrongdoing. Personally, I'd just give them a piece of my mind, cut my losses and move on.
Fyi, you could have sent that Delica in to Spyderco for sharpening, at no cost to you except for about $5(return shipping charge). This may be your best bet in getting your Delica back to like new condition.
I'd also recommend that you get a Sharpmaker so you won't run into problems like this in the future.
As I mentioned I dont know a ton about knives on the sharpening end...so, I didn't demand a new blade. I never demand and I'm not one of the those guys that are "never happy with anyone."The Mastiff wrote:I agree they messed up. I can't say they owe you a whole new blade because it's not damaged that bad. If you approached them with that demand perhaps that's why they aren't really trying to satisfy you. Some people can't be satisfied. Perhaps a return of your money and if you are fortunate have them pay for it's trip to the spa in Golden. That sounds a bit more reasonable then "it's ruined, I want a new blade".
I wouldn't worry about an altered heat treat. It isn't showing signs of anything like that.I wonder if he tried using a belt sander on them or a dremel tool? Yikes... He might have altered your heat treat if he heated up the blade with a dremel.
Thanx for the kind comments. Figured you were one of the "youngster's" It's a shame that the skill to create and maintain an edge seems to have been lost in the past several generations. I rank the "edge" (matter separator) with fire, another lost skill without our Zippo's).jnichols2 wrote:Sal,
I'm definitely not one of the "100 experts", but I am learnng a lot from this forum.
Also, since switching to Spyderco and getting a Sharpmaker my knives are now sharper than they have been in my 65 years.
My father could shave with his Tree Brand pocket knife, but he never taught me the skill.
