I think it will be a close call. If they can, there may not be many resharpenings left.

If they aren't getting down to the canvas an extra grind will bring them back.
It will shorten their lifespan a tad though..... 😕

Only been framing a year. Found a couple chips on my blades. Are they salvagable?
Probably
You are in Norway and the Morso choppers are from Denmark. :thumbsup:

Yes, exactly.
It all depends on how many times the blades have been sharpened and how much "meat" is left on them.

That looks pretty bad. Do you know what caused it?

If you know, you will want to make sure it doesn't happen again. You are losing a lot of blade this time. But I think they can be repaired.

There is no way to be sure that they can be sharpened with the picture you posted. If you have only been framing for a year and they were new when you started it is very likely there is more than enough blade to sharpen. If you bought them used, they may have been sharpened many times and it could be possible that there isn't enough blade left to sharpen. I suggest sending them in, it doesn't cost for them to tell you if they are still acceptable for sharpening or if they should be scraped. just my opinion

The blades are brand new, never been sharpened before, they were my spare set. My other set have been sharpened once. I'm not sure how this has happened but I'll put it down as a lesson learned and be extra vigilant with my blades from now on, too expensive to be careless with.

I'm sure that the blades will be fine after they are sharpened and corrected.
The blades being brand new still have a lot of life left in them and they can be used for quite a while even after being sharpened a number of times.

The blades should be absolutely fine after the sharpening. When they are brand new you should have at the very minimum of 20 sharpenings in them unless you have big chips because that will take away from the life of the blade. You should be good.
