    I recall a thread about this before and, IIRC, microbevels are only put on the back side of a deba.

    I know from my own personal mistake years ago that putting a bevel on the back side of a yanagiba is a mistake - you won't be able to do proper uraoshi sharpening on a yanagiba because it creates an upward bevel on the back side behind the edge, instead of it being flat.

    This rings a bell, with debas. I believe the sturdier, heel-end half of the edge, which makes sense as it's were you're more likely to do the business.

    I know that feeling...I'm looking forward to doing some reading on my trip...on the Nook of course! Kinda looking forward to limited and intermittent internet access.

    I believe this is a recommendation I got from KKF: http://www.amazon.com/The-Complete-G...=pd_cart_recs2

    Yup, taking the RV on a 7 state tour. I remembered that I had some green onions in the crisper that were starting to go soft, so I gave it a go...following the video from JapaneseKnifeSociety as closely as I could. Definitely improved as I worked my way from left-to-right. Here is a shot of the final rounds...not awful...After being shocked at the performance of my Masamoto, then my SIH, I really didn't think that could happen again...but it did.

    this is precisely what I recall from Jon's various comments and videos on the topic.

    I need to further clarify one thing. I put an upward bevel along most of the back side of the edge, not just a small portion.

    This was my mistake that I referred to in my earlier post. I mistakenly put an upward bevel on the back side of the edge most of my (luckily cheap) yanagiba, not just a small portion of the back side. i

    Looks weird, the bevel is on the wrong side.

    It's very hard to find a properly made knife...I understand your confusion.
