Sorry if you posted this info before ER... How tall is that knife at the heel?
Damn, I got the original choil and thinned choil labels backwards. If a mod would like to fix that, I'd be grateful.
It was 60.5mm tall OOTB, and is about 60.2mm, now.
Ha! I was wondering that when I saw this earlier. I was thinking, "is it my phone that makes the second look thinner or am I seriously this amateurish?"
You should see this knife, after Jon Broida went crazy on it.
It sucks to get a knife with a flaw like that. I once wanted to buy the IKEA VG 10 clad Slitbar gyuto when they still had them. I looked at three different knives which the salesman brought me one after another (from the other end of the warehouse, judging by how long I had to wait for him each time) and every single one of them had a massive concave section in the middle. I rejected them of course. After that they wouldn't take any more knives out of their packaging for me ... a real pity, I still have an almost unused normal Slitbar in my collection and it is a pretty nice knife for what it cost back then.
Hopefully you have a similar experience.
(Also I had a terrible experience sending knives to them for sharpening. Never again. And they weren't accommodating about the sharpening, so I am going to try it myself (nothing to lose at this point).
