I've had a problem recently and was wondering if it's coming down to my actual technique in sharpening or is it the actual build of the knife (profile).
I've noticed on this particular Misono that near the tip of the knife the curvature of the tip has been somewhat distorted. If you look closely you can see that the belly near the tip has flattened out somewhat and the actual tip almost points down; difficult to explain. I'm not sure if this is due to over sharpening in this area or not sharpening the tip enough. The bevel is really even all the way up and I figured if it was due to sharpening that the bevel would be all over the place;not sure really. This effects the knife in a rolling motion as the tip tends to get caught up and snags on the board.
Has anyone else experienced this? I'm just curious because I'd like to know if it's me that's causing this so that I can prevent it in the future. Any feed back is much appreciated.
Note: Two other knives I own do not have this type of profile, although my ginga petty 120 seems to have a very similar profile and I've only sharpened it once; maybe it is the profile?
