    I got a Wicked Edge a whole back and I’ve sharpened a good amount of knives with no issues. I recently sharpened two for two different people, and the similarities with what happened makes me think it’s somehnhb I did with the WE. One knife was a PM2 in S30V, and the other was a Para 3 in S30V. I took them up to 1000 grit diamond stones and stropped them with 10 micron paste. They both got a chip up about a half inch away from the tip. The edge was rolled on the Para 3. I’ve sharpened other S30V knives and I haven’t had that happen. Can anyone tell me what I may be doing that’s causing this and how I can fix it?

    Hi,
    When did the chips appear, after which grit stone?
    Dimensions of the chip ?
    how deep from the apex, how wide with blade length?
    Use a mm ruler or printer paper (~120micron thick) to estimate


    Chips in two blades in the same place, in the belly of the blade ,
    sounds like the corner of a sharpening stone took a bite out :)

    :thumbsdown:

    - the chip was there before sharpening
    - its crap steel
    - its chippy steel
    - the steel is damaged , so destress more ( cut the edge off using a stone ) before sharpen again
    - using too much pressure , like sudden corner of stone
    - its just scratches from 100 grit stone , so work it out with 200 / 400
    - new stones aren't broken in can have coarse clusters

    Thank you. I’ll sharpen a little more carefully and see what results I can get.
