Default What a Deal!

Our food processor's blade is showing its age. The main blade needs replacing, but in the meantime I thought I'd take a look at the possibility of honing it.
A perfect task for the little USB microscope I bought a year ago.
It's maximum magnification is 1000X, but the pics are about 500x. The pics are taken by clicking on an icon...video is also an option.
The pics below are of the faceside and back of the blade.

Maybe a fine needle file?

I’m thinking a up flute router bit might take care of this situation!

I looked at those a while back but didn't think the images would be that clear.

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.

Razor sharp, Charles. How can you go wrong for $20+/- ?

This would have been the week that I'd have finished chewing thru the restraints...

Would sanding the 'back' of the blade do anything?

Sent from my Hallicrafters S-40 using morse code.

I did that, Paul...1500 grit. There was definitely a burr on the back side. I think it'll help, but ideally I need to get into those 'ravines' on the front side without making them wider.

substitute the bit for the cutter...

or micro bevel the backside of the cutter...
