    Issue with grind on new Konosuke White #2 suji

    I just got a 300mm Kono suji and there is an issue with the 3-4cm closest to the heel. With the heel resting on a level surface, there is a 1.5-2cm area that does not make contact with the board before the contact is reestablished about 3cm from the heel. It makes for a very awkward feel when making a rocking motion.

    My question is: will this work itself out with a little time on the stones or do I need to exchange the knife?

    Sorry for lack of pics, I'm getting crappy reception right now and it would take forever to upload.

    Is there a grind issue in that area as well, i.e., an overgrind?

    If it is only the edge, or lack there of, it would take you just a few minutes on the right stone.

    But if what Michael suspects is true, then you'd have got a yuzu.

    yep, if you try to just lower the heel of the knife you still have a problem with the center being to high, thus you still will have the issue. I would send that pic with the knife back, see what they say.

    yeah, if you try and sharpen it-then try and return it you might be out of luck.

    Think a Suji more of a slicer than rock cutting.If you don't like it give a call & see if they accept that as a return.If you put it to the stones cannot return.

    A little overgrind is an easy fix when thinning esp. white steel.As a slicer,fruits,veg.,& meats a tiny rise at the heal is not critical to slicing motion.

    How does an experienced dealer not see this before shipping?

    I say to return it and make them pay for the shipping. If you try to fix this and the repair doesn't work out then you're screwed.
