To the contrary, the cracks aren’t very big at all. Which is why 10 or so people didn’t even notice them and why they only show up in photos where the camera is several inches from the knife.Strangely the cracks don't show in the initial photos with the spine the Op posted. Cracks that large are hard to miss.
It's funny I feel totally confident doing that, and have done it for years. But my balls sucked back up into me when I watched myself editing these videos. I've never cut myself, but I guess there's always a first time for everything.From the pic it looked similar to the one on my Mazaki which James from KNS said was a de-lamination line. It also looks similar to the Carter that just sold on bst which was originally discounted for having a delam.
Cool set of videos @captaincaed but you scared me when you went to core the apple.
