I've been trying to sharpen my Becker Bk16 for a while and I've been struggling to get it really sharp. I found this guy online that does sharpening for a living and he had a ton of really great reviews. I sent in the BK16 and I decided to let him sharpen my new Salt 2 SE too while I was at it. It felt fine out of the box, but I thought he would be able to make it a little better. So he did a great job on the Becker. Put a beautiful edge on it that's razor sharp. But he pretty much messed up the Salt 2. I am really unhappy with it. He explained that he didn't sharpen it but only polished the edge. So now the result is that all of those pointy serrations are smoothed out and the backside of the blade looks pretty messed up and discolored from the polishing. I don't think he was familiar with the H1 material at all and how it would respond to the polishing. I not only have an ugly blade now, the serrations are totally messed up. I wanted a knife that could shred things even after it become dull which is why I went with the SE. The knife I have now is sharper but it just slices through ropes without digging in and once it becomes dull, it's not going to be an effective knife at all. Just kind of pretty upset about this. Not sure what to do about it? Can I send it back to Spyderco to have them put a new SE on it? Find another sharpener that will be able to restore the SE? I'm not quite skilled enough or comfortable enough with the process to even try to do it myself. Thanks.
