Default How Do I Reshape This V Gouge?

I bought this V gouge from Ebay. It has been ground unevenly on both sides. Looks like quite an aggressive removal of metal, I assume done on a high speed grinder. If it had been over heated, are bluing marks always visible as a tell tell sign?

I have a Tormek BGM 100 bench grinder jig that was thrown in free when I bought some Tormek jigs. Tormek says, " These instructions are exclusively for HSS turning tools, since dry grinding at high speed is not suitable for ordinary carbon steel tools
due to the risk of overheating and its aggressive steel removal. "
That said, is it possible to reshape this V gouge back to working condition? It would take forever on my wet stone grinder.
Thanks.

I bought a Sorby corner chisel (similar to a V gouge) off ebay and it wasn't perfectly square either. I managed to get it very close using diamond hones. They are a bit tricky to sharpen even by hand. I found that I had to go across the cutting edge at an angle to get the point sharp. I should mention that I am talking about an in cannel grind as opposed to an out cannel. An out cannel should be quite easy.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.
