Okay....now the pictures make sense....sorry!! :o

I've seen this tip condition several times....mostly (well, always I guess) on hand made knives.

I wouldn't worry about it as it's done on purpose.....or so I've been told. So long as the edge is in a straight line (this can be checked on a flat surface) you have nothing to worry about.

OK this begs the question, why would it be done on purpose?

Well, that maybe came out different than I had hoped.

Not on purpose, per say.....but on purpose in so much as it's how the knife is ground.

I don't recall being told why....but I'd guess due to the asymmetrical grind of the knife.

I believe you're right in that it's an asymmetry in the grind rather than a bent tip. I've had several single-bevel knives that I could swear had bent tips----until I put a straightedge beside them. It's a powerful optical illusion.
