OK tks I'm honestly not hoping for a problem I found out that photoing a knife isn't as easy as I thought. lighting, reflections, shadows argh.. So I've come to find this is a DIY knife. I thought it was sharp but isn't and I have to shape the edge like I want. photos are crap but one shows the heel too low (right after kanji slopes down) and another shows the cladding going almost down to the edge. (not sure if that matters but...)
