18/07/22-Looking this knife over I've found a few flaws which were not especially apparent to me at the time I finished it. The surface finish is inconsistent on the right hand face of the blade, and there are some very fine scratches from what I assume was the 8k stone on the same side from a slip which are very difficult to see in incandescent light. On top of that I've discovered a minor amount of overgrind just an inch forward from the heel, it all but disappears when you set the edge on a board, but it's still faintly visible, aaaand the damn blade points out about 5mm to the right at the tip.

How I let all of this go unnoticed when I made the knife several months ago....? I'm not sure. Crappy lighting and fatigue at the time, lack of control on the stones, perhaps some shifting during glue up. Whatever the case, I could tear it down and refinish the whole thing, but it will still make a good working knife as it is. The grind is somewhat banal compared to the ones I've been using these past 2-3 months or so, and there's almost no bias to the blade, it has a good 8-8.5cm of flat towards the heel and it's more of a workhorse grind than a laser.

This wouldn't make a bad beater, or practice knife for sharpening, not a pageant queen by any means, but the steel and HT are solid, and the handle-in spite of it's misalignment with the blade is fit well.
