I bought a bunch of small slicers(桑刀)from Chefsmall.net a few months ago. One came out curled to one side (warped) about 2" at the tip of the blade and up about 1" up from the edge. Is it safe to use a plastic mallet to hammer the warped area back straight? Does it require the skill of a blacksmith like Murray Carter?
I also noticed something similar had happened to my CCK 1103, although the bended area is very small concentrated at the very tip. I figured I must had hit something during a cooking session.
