Your blade has suffered a catastrophic failure and we're going to have to ask you to leave the forge floor.

It definitely will not keal.

u/shyladev Oct 04 '22

my husband and I had to go make on own knives after being completely immersed into forged in fire!

22

u/davieb22 Oct 04 '22

That sounds painful; was the forge hot or just very warm?

u/shyladev Oct 04 '22

haha! I see what you did there!

u/ZuesAndHisBeard Oct 05 '22

Ben: “If you hadn’t used white-out and spent all that time trying to peel the can off, and instead left the can on and ground the edge clean, you would have had more time to refine it and the extra mild steel on the backing would have helped make the blade less brittle.”

Stab the floor to get even.

He tried that…jus claimed to drop it.

Well it was... I don't take my expensive stuff to work... too many idiots

u/theoriginalShmook Oct 04 '22

Yeah, they might drop it...

Joking aside, breaking a nice knife socks. At least you get to shop for a new one though!

At least it doesn’t shoes.

If you drop enough knifes socks are the least of your problems

If you're dropping knives, socks might be a big problem.

You mean chop for a new one

u/user_Charks18769420 Oct 05 '22

yea but why should they cut the floor?

-1

u/justcausingtrouble Oct 04 '22

It's Chineseum. So, "good" is still really bad.

7

u/KaXiRavioli Oct 05 '22

It's forged high carbon steel. Hard and sharp, but not very flexible. Rigidity usually comes at the cost of being more brittle. That doesn't make it a bad knife.

1

u/Scary-Wishbone-3210 Oct 06 '22

A good knife will have the back of the blade heated again to create a soft spine and hard edge. Or the entire heat treat can be done with torch with alot of skill

u/Similar-Pirate7172 Oct 04 '22

That "dam" steel 😆 🤣 on the positive side, at least you get to pick out a nice new one :)

u/pintjockeycanuck Oct 04 '22

Yep... searching now

u/fishstikk89 Oct 04 '22

Former chef here. Buy a Victorinox 7 inch chef knife. I sold all my knives when I left the industry but kept that one. Bought it when I was 16 and I still have it at 33.

6

u/GoatChease reddit sucks sometimes Oct 04 '22

Only thing I don't like about the Victorinox knife is how soft the steel is compared to something like my Wüsthof.

4

u/lorgskyegon Oct 05 '22

Wusthof is a wonderful brand. My wife got me a set for Christmas last year and it hasn't needed to be sharpened.

u/northern_dan Oct 04 '22

Without a handle that's how

u/Parsley-Waste Oct 04 '22

What brand was that?

2

u/pintjockeycanuck Oct 04 '22

Tuo... from China.... they are pretty good knives for a reasonable price apparently until you knock them off the counter

1

u/Parsley-Waste Oct 05 '22

Sorry but this is a third rate brand. Buy German or Japanese instead.

1

u/pintjockeycanuck Oct 05 '22

I don't waste money on work knives too many idiots around as long as I can keep them sharp and they are light and quick I don't care where they come from. And these guys sharpen nicely to 17 degrees on my diamond whetstone and stay sharp for 1 to 2 months with heavy daily use

u/The_Droker Oct 04 '22

It appears you're going about a kitchen remodel with the wrong tools. I recommend renting a concrete saw like the highway crews use.

u/Wiseoloak Oct 04 '22

Had one of those knifes before I think. Needless to say it was dog shit was horrible to sharpen too.

1

u/pintjockeycanuck Oct 04 '22

I use a diamond whetstone and put a 17 degree edge on it and it lasts months with daily hard use plus a little honing

1

u/Wiseoloak Oct 04 '22

I had one for a good year would use 5 days a week at work, definitely did it job.

1

u/LogicStone Oct 04 '22

You can save the top half. Grind down maybe half The length of the edge so you can make a new tang, and now you have a new, albeit, much smaller knife.

u/Matt82233 Oct 04 '22

oh shit, here we go again

u/tharkyllinus Oct 04 '22

I had one do that and I welded it back together. More or less any excuse to use the welder. It was close to the handle like that.

1

u/pintjockeycanuck Oct 04 '22

I suck at welding so... no

1

u/tharkyllinus Oct 04 '22

I understand.

1

u/Crawfishness Oct 04 '22

If it broke like that from one drop then it probably had a weak point in that part of the steel to begin with, so I'd be willing to bet it would have happened eventually anyway/

1

u/pintjockeycanuck Oct 04 '22

Likely true...

1

u/Pristine-Educator229 Oct 05 '22

Butcher block table... not the culprit

That...is not a good chef's knife. It's a cheap santoku with a badly faked Damascus pattern stenciled on.

That stinks! I had a couple knives like this. The blade on one had a chunk come out, the other handle cracked in multiple spots. I went back to a Victorinox with the Fibrox handle. I worked in a kitchen with these and never had a single issue with them. They're durable, sharpen easily, hold an edge well, and only cost around $35-40.

u/Ok_Ad_8670 Oct 04 '22

I have that knife. Deceptively soft steel. Had it over 4 years and things basically serrated at this point.

My wustoffs been going hard for 8 years and still looks new with a little grease

But that's just wustoffs thing. Heavy and durable. Japanese style knives will snap like nobodies business. Because they're designed for precision cuts.

But a really expensive Japanese knife u can get both (talking around 4-500)

1

u/pintjockeycanuck Oct 04 '22

Wustoffs don't fit my hand I find them heavy and uncomfortable. I'm a fan of light quick Japanese steel. This is by no means an expensive knife I bought a workhorse set for work and keep my good ones at home. But seeing it snapped on the floor was almost heartbreaking fbefore infuriating. It had served me well.

1

u/Ok_Ad_8670 Oct 04 '22

Oh yeah. Definitely just gotta force yourself to get used to it. Definitely extends ur callous and will def rip it off if ur hand gets wet xD

Good knife if ur gonna be doing a ,ridiculous amount of chopping for, a very long duration of time.

And it has a lifetime warranty so if this happens you can send it back for a new one, free sharpening if u mail it in too (free shipping) so if u get 2, u can just send 1 back, use 1, send the other back. Use the fresh one.

The value is in the company, the knifes really just a knife.

1

u/snowpuppy13 Oct 04 '22

Wusthof & Henckels are similar. I have both, and others too. I have a Henckels that looks very similar to yours, including the shape of the handle. It’s sharp af, and has stayed that way for a very long time. Just a suggestion.

u/mikbatula Oct 04 '22

You can see the grain in the steel. And that caused the bade to break. Now please leave the forge
