Usuba looks like it has a bit of a curve, but that could be your camera distortion. It does seem to have a nice fit and finish though. How's its edge holding?

Just got it recently so I'm not sure... It actually hasn't even been properly sharpened yet since I wanted a chance to "get to know it" so I could better appreciate the difference.
