The first picture is compared to my Sakai Yusuke (extra thin version).
I tried to estimate the angle that the guyto was sharpened to using an Edge Pro. You can probably make out a small mark close to the heel, that was where the stone made its mark at 6 degrees (measured with an angle cube)! The tip is even more acute, roughly 4-5 degrees average (convex of course but thats an average). The grind is symmetrical with no convexion (straight as a ruler) on the side of the blade, only the sharpened part is convex. I put on a micro bevel and it cuts quite nicely, no chipping yet.
Overall F&F looks decent. I need to put some epoxy where the tang enters the handle to avoid moisture getting in there. The deba had a few chips when it arrived. No overgrinds, backside of deba looks great!
