    Hi Dave - I checked last night and you're spot on. The heel is a little high and it seems I haven't been working it as much as the rest of the blade when sharpening.

    Thanks, Zwiefel. I'm hoping it's the board! That seems like the easiest fix to me. Not even sure how I would diagnose and cure a problem with my technique!

    Thanks, Matus. I'm using a Hiromoto AS. It appears to have a flat spot near the heel of about 1/5 of the blade.

    Hi folks,

    I'm still quite new to sharpening and this is probably a total NOOB question but I've been searching the forum and can't find a definitive answer.

    Misono or Kochi suji?

    Has anybody used the Kochi suji in V2? What's the grind like? I gather the gyuto grind is lefty friendly.

    I think I'm torn between the Misono Swedish and the kochi.
