Chipped knife - how far can it be ground down?

lambretta76 | Feb 1, 2009 11:16 AM

So, somehow my Global 11" chef's knife got chipped on a chunk of chocolate in a cookie. Seriously. I didn't drop the knife on the sink or anything, my wife was chopping a log of cookie dough into rounds and it got stuck on a small chunk of chocolate.

Anyways, the chip is about 1/8" deep into the blade and measures about 1/4" long. My question is how far can you grind down a knife (is that the correct word) before the knife is no longer useful. Is it possible to have such a deep chip ground down and sharpened, or is this knife destined for the recycling bin?
