    Scratched Blade

    I have a Benchmade Griptilian that I have been carrying for over a year and have been able to keep the blade like new. I like perfect blades.
    I made a mistake last week though.
    A guy was sitting at his desk sharpening his knife with a length of ceramic tubing, about 1" dia and he said "want me to put an edge on your knife?" I handed it to him and let him work awhile and then he handed it back to me. I nearly had a heart attack when I saw all of the scratches that he put on both sides of the blade. I guess the end of the round tube caused the scratches when the knife went off the end with each stroke.
    Is there anything that I can do about these scratches?

    If it's that big of a deal, a rag-wheel with some very fine buffing compound might take them out .

    It's not really a big deal since it is an EDC knife. It just aggravated me that, after a year of not a scratch, he added about 30 in five minutes. If that had happened to my burlwood Paul Presto.......I would have cried.

    I never said a word to him about it. We've worked together too long. I think he was aware when he handed it back to me though.

    You may want to call Benchmade and see if they have a way of doing it or they may have you send it back to them for a factory refinishing.

    "These" scratches? Yes, BM can refinish the blade for you. Future sctratches- my personal rule of thumb is that no one else touches my EDC.

    I never was much of one for a pretty knife...just functional. That said...you could try a ragwheel and buffing compound. Depends on how deep the scratches are too. Are they just scratches or deep gouges.

    Just scratches. I'm gonna take the advise given here and try to rub them out with some buffing compound.
    Thanks for the advise.
