I am considering that the use of 'kerfed' in the example sentence for the verb definition is actually as a noun. A plural noun, 'several kerfs'. the verb is 'to cut'. I suggest an example sentence using 'to kerf' should be written, but I will not write one as I do not believe the verb definition should exist. 17:01, 23 February 2014 (UTC)

There isn't any example sentence- just the definition: "to cut a piece of wood or other material with several kerfs to allow it to be bent." If you search for conjugated forms such as kerfed, you will find plenty of independent examples over multiple years of it clearly being used as a verb- which is all the verb section needs to meet our Criteria For Inclusion. Here is the first one I happened to look at, which should lay to rest any doubts about kerf being used as a verb. Chuck Entz (talk) 00:11, 24 February 2014 (UTC)
