Carving knife maintenance is very important and in today’s video I am gonna show you how I did all steps with basic tools. You don’t need power tools, but basic tools are necessary.
The carving knife is produced by Mora factory in Sweden. The blade is laminated steel and close to the pointed end of the blade layers started separating. With the help of a file I managed to nicely recover that part.

Dismantling the knife
Since it is a more modern carving knife I haven’t had any trouble disassembling it. So,I started by removing the surface rust from the blade and the bolster. Surprisingly blade’s tang was in really good shape and without any rust.
After that I grinded the blade on the stone wheel powered by foot. Also can be hand powered but in that case only one hand is free to hold the blade. Therefore I prefer using my foot.
The next step is sanding and for that I used wet sanding paper. Since the rough grinding I did on stone wheel, I started sanding from 240 grit. Finished with 1200 grit and got quite a nice smooth steel surface.
Polishing and assembling
At this point I was ready to polish the blade and the bolster. To spin the polishing pad I used the hand crank grinder. And for the paste I like to use Autosol.
Finally I started putting pieces back together. This was a quick and easy assembly.
Thank you a big time for checking out this post!
