If you have a small ballpeen hammer, some visegrips, and a decent bench
grinder or milling machine: remove & peen the blade down in thickness on
some flat steel - this will push material towards the edge. Re-hone or mill
the edge true and reset the blade in the splicer (via a few test splices),
and that blade will work again. You could do this once or twice per new
blade. Used to do this with Wurker & other blades too.
