Around my neighborhood they have heard I do sharpening and thought that means I could do knife repairs. So they showed me this German knife made in 60s they bought in Germany. It had 2 inches of the tip broken off and they had put in storage for a decade. I had only done one other broken tip when my wife dropped a large kitchen knife and broke of a inch from the tip. Anyways I could kick myself for not taking a before photo but quite happy on how it turned out. It had some rust and pretty heavy scratches but I couldn’t remove all the scratches because I had to preserve the artwork on the blade. And it sharpened razor sharp with a really nice reflection.
