    Here's a couple of pictures of an American made (Bark River) chef's knife with overgrind. You can see pretty clearly how it won't take but a couple of sharpening jobs before a hole appears in the edge.

    Thanks Dave! That really drives the point home. It also shows how someone who slices as their only cutting technique would not notice any problem.

    Come on, Dave, there are some OTHER sharpening services out there that say that's perfectly normal and they could sharpen it up where you wouldn't any day....
