    Yeah, I'm curious about the bevel too. If it's 50/50, I might bite.

    You know what, I agree. If it were left-handed. Oh well. It looks really cool, though.

    it's 50/50,
    retention is very good.
    This is a very clean high quality tool steel.
    I had Honesuki from Misono Swedish carbon steel (which has served as a prototype for the manufacture of the knife)
    retention on this knife is much better than Misono.
    Steel feels like a blue steel
