      Description

      To reproduce:

      • Obtain one fully repaired tool and another of the same type (fully repaired or damaged; either works).
      • Use a grindstone or crafting interface to combine them.

      Expected results:

      • Repairing only works if the items are damaged. This is how an anvil behaves.

      Actual results:

      • The two items will still be combined. As a result, one of the items will be "deleted."

      This is by no means game-breaking ("oh no, I have one less of the hundreds of bows I get from skeletons!"), and could have been used to disenchant before grindstones were added. That makes me unsure if this is WAI or not.

      An attempted bisect revealed that apparently it's been this way since repair was first added (I tested 1.0.0, as I couldn't find beta 1.9pre3 on the launcher). This, to me, adds further to the "is this WAI?" confusion. This behaviour persisted through 1.14 and 1.14.3pre3, when crafting to repair was replaced with supplemented by the grindstone.
