    Do you not think its odd for a suji to have this geometry? I don't mind it, but it does make re-finishing a bit of a hassle.

    more then one person got sloppy, the grinder,the polisher, the sharpener, the fitter and the man who inspected it before it went out.

    i've read on other threads that kono's QC has been spotty as of late. due to increased demand.

    Actually I purchased this in 2011, so its not exactly a recent problem.

    Def not supposed to be that way. I'd be inclined to pull out the DMT and flatten that back.

    I can't see that it would affect performance in a negative way.

    If anything he can sell it on ebay and call it a custom feature.

    This isn't a Konosuke issue, unless he bought it directly from Konosuke. This is 100% the fault of the retailer. They should never have put this in the mail to a customer.

    Maybe you didn't know this, but Jon Broida, owner of Japanese Knife Imports who posted in this thread, used to sell Konosuke knives. I think his response pretty much answers any questions you may have about whether the knife is supposed to be that way: "this should not be that way."

    I doubt many retailers would detect this issue, I had it for about a year before I found it, when I laid the knife flat on the stone. It's really not easy to detect at all. I would say it's Kono's fault because they made it and shipped it out to be sold like this. They were happy for this knife to represent their workmanship, and shouldn't rely on the retailer for QC.
