Convert serrated 111mm to non serrated
« on: April 14, 2021, 03:14:00 PM »
I bought a 111mm one hand open blade SAK, which I like except for one thing. I DON"T LIKE SERRATED BLADES

Can I sand or grind the blade down to remove the serrations then sharpen as a normal blade?

I know the blade shape or profile will be slightly altered but thats OK by me

Now next question how to do it. Sandpaper then  stone for final sharpening? Would a file work to remove serrations?

Thanks in advance for any suggestions

Yea you can. I have a GAK that this procedure has been done. Done before I bought it.

I can’t tell you how, but any experienced knife sharpener can do it.

Thanks zrxoa1

That's what I thought

There is a little bit of info online but nothing great

I love serrated blades, but if I were to try to remove the serrations, I’d go with a coarse diamond plate to cut them down. Like DMT ‘blue’ at least.

I think the main thing to decide is if you are going to keep the blade a 1-sided chisel grind, or a symmetrical one.

I did exactly this to my OHO GAK a little while ago: ground out the partial serration with a 100grit diamond plate, moving to 200-400-600, I also made it a convential rather than chisel grind. There's a hint of serration left, but that's purely because I weighed up fixing it vs the additional wear on my stone, it doesn't actually meat the edge, so just looks a little funky. Here's some picks, I used a Wicked Edge to do it, any guided angle sharpener would make this pretty trivial if time consuming:
