    Honestly? If this is important in five years, no you didn't. But your post speaks to the fact that your mother gave it to you and it WAS an awesome knife. As far as awesome knives go? Yeah maybe you are. I DO get why you are upset, I am cook. Or I cook for pleasure, not business and I would just about kill for some nice knives. I am sure he thought he was helping you. Doing something nice for you.

    Kinda like my fish dinner Ken cooked for me once. Once. Thank you honey, that was delicious!!! [​IMG]

    Maybe the "sharpening" was covering evidence of it being damaged from inappropriate use. Been there. Either way, certain knives and scissors are simply the untouchables, though the lengths that the culprits will go to to cover damages is amazing.

    I would be upset to. I have the same thing in my house. My fiance is a chef and he use to cook for a living and is really good at it. He has "his" Knifes and i am not allowed to touch them. I also have my set (not as expensive or good as his but i like the) Included are a bunch of random ones and he tried to throw them away on my once. I about had a cow! lol

    So, your FIL knows how to sharpen a knife but doesn't know that you don't sharpen a serrated knife without a special sharpener?

    I would be POed too. I have damaged plenty of good knives doing stupid stuff, and unless you are really good at reshaping, they are never the same. That's why I like cheap carbon steel. Very easy to sharpen, with a few strokes.

    Oh, sure, Featherfinder, you certainly can TOUCH them but don't use them! [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I can relate to you all about someone else using your knives and ruining them. I had a very expensive knife that I just love and hubby was cutting wood with it. [​IMG] Why in the heck can't you use your power hand saw or hand saw to cut off a bit of notch on your wood project?! (it was a wood ship model display...I think it was the USS Constitution)

    I told him next time ASK and I will refer him to the appropriate tooll downstairs in the basement in his workshop!

    It doesen't matter if they can understand why you are upset about it.... the fact is that everyone has things that are special and important to them and those feelings go beyond the actual physical item itself. Abusing property that you made clear was important to you is them being DISRESPECTFUL of your feelings, DISRESPECTFUL of you, and that's not trivial!

    You break something special to someone... YOU REPLACE that same exact item out of your own pocket.... Because it's the RIGHT THING to do!!!!
