    tk, if you are 'blending' the ura, something is not right. The ura is supposed to be dead flat. My Masamoto, came darn near dead flatg, and needed very little work.. Others have told the story that the ura was a mess and needed lots of work. I bet Dave could tell us how bad it can really get.

    Normally, I'd agree but I had to grind a new profile on a fixer-upper and the ura didn't make it all the way around the blade. Thus, I had to grind the back side until the ura showed up in the offending area. This left the back side not quite flat so I blended until the back side was flat again. Let me say that this is not easy to do on an 8x3 stone, lol.
