Hi, I dropped my knife on it's point and ruined the point.. all i have for sharpeners is the sharpener in the picture.. will that be able to sharpen the point? so far it doesn't seem so..anything else you can suggest? Thanks!
As the blade grows narrower towards the point, the edge angle necessarily grows more obtuse. (It is possible to avoid this, but on a dagger like this it would result in a much too thin and fragile point.) Accusharps only work with one preset edge angle, and on most blades like this at some point the edge angle simply becomes so obtuse that the accusharp can no longer even touch it, so you'll need a different tool.
Personally, I actually find accusharps to be more hassle than a good single cut file and a selection of sandpapers from 80 to 1200 grit or so.
