Just got it today. What would you do? Return, leave alone, or fill? If fill, would tinted waterproof epoxy get down in those small gaps? Tape off and drop in some super glue?

Re-handle, or return. I returned mine, their quality is really half-ass. It's an easy fix, but will likely still look like crap if you go that route.

I'm gonna return. Bummer cuz I do like it. Would love to re handle but can't afford that route now :(

It wouldn't bother me. I'd just fill it with epoxy. But you can't go wrong with a return. For 20 or 30 bucks more, you can try a MAC Superior bread knife.

Yeah, maybe I'll do that or consider a sujihiki for slicing crusty stuff.

I'd just wax it up good and use it as is.....

Tojiro really has been dropping the ball. If it bugs you, return it. If you can live with it, keep it.

I would return it, since it obviously bothers you and probably always will (it would bother me, too). I went with the Mac, and am very pleased with the level of fit and finish.
