Did I ruin my blade?

    Hello everyone, I just attempted to sharpen my Benchmade Osborne 940-2 and believe I over sharpened it? When using an electronic sharpener I went for a 15 degree edge and to sharpened to the tip like I have read to do and now my tip doesn't exist and it's uneven. Does anyone know how to correct this?

    It's nowhere near ruined, but you will need to reshape it to bring the tip back.

    By reshaping do you mean continue grinding the new edge? Or further work once I have finished sharpening?

    if you really wanted to part with your knife, you could have sent it to Benchmade, and they would have sharpend it for you.

    I want to add 20 plus years ago when I really stared getting into knives I ruined tips, made knives duller and all sorts of stupid stuff. But, I learned from it and now I can enjoy my knives and sharpen them. Better to learn a skill through trial and error than not learn IMHO.
