I finally got my hands on a Heiji ss gyuto and was suprised by just how asymmetrical the grind is. For some reason i was expecting it to be closer to 50/50 than this.
Is this the normal grind for Heiji? The reason why i ask is because that shorter, sticky out heel to tip secondary bevel looks like a wedge waiting to happan. To me that left hand bevel looks like it could do with a touch of thinning, particularly at the belly and tip.
I should point out that i haven't used the knife yet, so i could be worried about nothing.
These pics don't show the true extent of the "wedgeness" of the left hand bevel, but it's the best i could do with faiding light.
