    Did you hammer the edge?

    Can show any image to give me the ideal ?

    What’s the point of hammering the knife if you want to return it?
    In worse case, you might do it worse then it will not be possible for refund

    regarding the low spots, lay the knife lower and see where the holes are and how wide and deep they are, the choil shows there is potentially some meat in the geometry for you to grind down to even out the low spots. for the bent spine, you'll need to bend it back but fyi alot of knives have slightly waving spines but straight edges.

    never buy a tf sight unseen. hand pick and you'll have a nice knife.

    I got my 180 gyuto in the mail today. I have to say.. for the price this maker charges.. this is sad.. i’m glad i tested the waters and only bought a 180 mab. Im not seeing serious issues but only time will tell i’m guessing. I’m going to re examine before I do anything with it. Right now it looks like a serious noob put this thing on a 6-8k stone. The angle looks different with the top, middle, and heel of the blade. We’ll see but right now i’m thinking never again haha.
    I think the problem is gaku speaks well but not perfect english. I’m sure you did, but make sure he understands you had these problems way before you attempted sharpening. Either way, it doesn’t sound like these guys at TF are open to speaking about any of these issues let alone accepting them. For the price they charge they should be ashamed.

    Makes you wonder, the TF's that are known to be good examples by multiple forum members that sell on BST probably deserve a price premium (thinking of the nice western conversion that sold a couple weeks back). It's frustrating people spend this kind of money and get lemons from the craftsmen directly.

    Do you get burr evenly around the spot on the other side?

    If yes, that implies the edge line is straight.
    If no, that implies only the “summit" contacts the stone and the edge line is not straight.
    If it’s bent and you get even burr around the spot by sharpening with a constant angle, the edge line should have a lower spot.

    If it’s bent and snaking, you cannot put a micro bevel on it. The other side of the peak never contacts the stone.
    If you can raise burr with 30 degree anyway, that implies the edge line is straight.

    Mystery solved. It was a TF. We all can sleep better now, a great ending.

    After terrible experience with TF i won't suggest any of my friend to buy those knife, I heard from KOKI Hinoura is gorgeous brand.

    I was considering Hinoura W2 before i pull on trigger with Kintaro AS, However i need edge retention, decide Kintaro at the end.
