Can you post pictures of the V1 gyuto especially of the grind? Just curious if your is thinner than mine was befire thinning....
Nope, I am just very bad in holding camera in my left hand
He just had Tom model for him
I've owned a few and they all chipped in a similar way. I didn't need a microbevel on any of them, just fresh steel.
what doesn't bend breaks right, so there's a cost to highly hardened steel. those chips wouldn't worry me at all, the guys are right just microbevel it.
