That's why I hate choil shots, I'll call again see if I can get someone who knows what they are doing. I agree if it is biased its not by much.If it's a good shop, hopefully you could trust the dude. At the end of the day, a choil shot doesn't show anything in front of the choil. If the guy at the shop had the knife in front of him, hopefully he would check the whole grind not just peek at the choil.
I see it as 50/50 too--try tilting your screen in one direction then the other... It's like a shape-shifter
Have yet to see a symmetrically ground Japanese knife.No not a quiz, I don't want another righty, this is the only thing I've got to go with. I called the shop last night and he assured me the knife is a 50/50 grind, to me that means it sharpened 50/50 but it looks like its got a righty bias.
