      I just hate it when people ruin a perfectly good tool through ignorance or impatience. A shame. Good luck. Are you a goo sharpener yourself or do you know some one who is a blade maker or cutlerer? They might have some valid suggestions on rehabilitation of the blade.

The bad job of grinding this blade, done quite recently judging by how bright and shiny the scratches are still, is making it much more difficult to get this sharpened- at least I'm betting it wouldn't have been worse had they not put it to the grinder...
