Actually it looks like the kitchen cat chewed the section off
After some thought the cut looks about right having seen video's of flint tool use with the short blade length.
Maybe there is a market for this kind of stuff; the paleo diet is pretty popular and has spawned some strange "lifestyle" accessories such as bare foot running chain mail slippers (no kidding).
LOL can't help but laugh at the flint tool comment...
Whoever created this oughta be locked up. I'm also trying not to think of all the heinous injuries that would ensue from using what looks like essentially a sharpened stainless steel bar of half-used up soap.
PS: Chef's Choice will need to put out a new line for sharpening these fukas.
The horror....the horror...

It's genius. Corky from life goes on uses the same model. And he cuts fish and stuffs!
