    Is the face of the Heiji flat? Or is there some convexing happening?

    the left side is pretty flat and the right side has a small amount of convexing, on mine. neither of mine were bought new, though, so i really don't know.

    So on the right side: Convexed face, convexed blade road, flat edge-bevel?
    On the left: Flat face, convexed blade road (same size as right?), edge-bevel (again, same size?)

    Going to be a couple of days before I put this to good use...but F+F seems really good, it came with a nice carrying case as well as the best packing job I've ever seen...I mean really...the thing had a splint! Nice polish on it too...maybe the shiniest knife I have now.

    Very nice distal taper, and much thinner behind the edge than I'd expect given the sense of heft when holding it. Balance is just slightly in front of the grip when held in pinch grip.

    Welcome home.
    Forgot to mention, spine and choil are nicely rounded and the join between the ferrule and handle seems to be perfect. Really quite thin near the tip...perhaps thinner than any other knife I own, with a small amount of flex that's not present 2-3" from the tip.

    i'm just talking about the secondary bevel. i haven't paid much attention to exactly how the blade face is shaped, above the secondary bevel, but i think it's pretty flat. i'd have to look again when i get home.

    FWIW, on mine from the spine down to the shinogi line the face is flat.

    Z,

    Your beautiful knife is getting lost in the grinding tangent but congrats. Definitely qualifies as Knife Porn.

    Indeed, congrats. I really love the 270s that pull double duty of guyto/suji.

    Thanks guys....Mario does beautiful work.

    I'm going to use it to do a run-through of the knife skills class...try to get a few hours on it....physically, it's the largest one I have...but it feels considerably longer than the actual difference would suggest...going to be a bit of an adjustment...which means spending more time with a beautiful piece of equipment...which is just awful. But I have the character and training to get through it
