Mine was hectic. I didn’t know at the time, but the more I learned the more I realized how much work it needs.More of a general question, for such an expensive knife, are people really being over critical?
Or, do people really get knives with serious defects as I see a lot of chatter about some being superior but a lot also having real faults.
It looks like it was ground while blackout drunk, just massive lows and random microbevel widths. That said it performed well ootb - I’m slowly making my adjustments, and will continue to do so until i have no complaints. It currently sits too thin near the edge (oops) and too thick at the shoulders, but I love how it cuts.
Maybe I wouldn’t have bought it if I knew all these things, but I’m happy I did because that steel is ridiculous, and it’s really taught me a lot about geometry and messing with it.
