    My neighbor of over 20 years left me his knife and I have carried it every day since receiving it. I broke the tip off of it today being a dumbass, my wedding ring fell in the floor vent and while trying to get the wooden cover out of the floor I snapped the tip off.

    Anyone in Okc repair such things? I have a knife sharpener but I want it done right. The ring is still in the vent by the way.

    How much of the tip is missing?

    You can work wonders with a file(s) and fine sandpaper.

    I will try to get a picture here in a little bit, almost 1/4 inch I think.

    Turn it into a blunt tip/dive knife.

    What brand is it? I have sent a few benchmade, spyderco and case knives back to the factory and got new blades put on them.Case was the only one that didn't charge me.

    Benchmade

    I looked into sending it to them to repair but a friend of a friend actually hooked me up with a better avenue. Thank you all for the ideas!
