    Lol, that's the reason I sold it.

    As far as the grind, I never had any steering issues either. I think Tilman told me he tried his best to keep it more symmetrical since that's what I preferred.

    He did a good job. I just cut up a cantaloupe and there was no steering.

    just confirm with Tilman its 70/30 asymmetric convex grind edge! if you zoom picture 8x you will see it is asymmetric edge! so you don't feel any "steering" problem when you cuted??

    No, not even a little.

    I'm not surprised. I used two right-handed Misonos for a little while and didn't notice much if any "right-handedness". I think it's tough to detect until you get more drastic asymmetry.

    Whats the thickness of the knife? My Tilman is very thin, so I would imagine there is not much steering if it is as thin as mine.
