Pretty rare to see a VG steel Shun that isn't chipped.

is it the heat treatment? i´ve heard that sometimes they have a bad batch and there can be microbubbles on the steel?

it was odd seeing those big discounts on some of their lines.

It's a small chip, and the blade has been used/abused by people who normally handle soft Germans. VG-10 is not particulary abrasion resistant, so repair is quite simple.
If you have no coarse stone you may repair with coarse automotive sandpaper, starting with P120. Edge trailing strokes only. Remove the chip and correct the profile at some 80 degree per side, perform thinning at the lowest angle you're comfortable with and set your normal bevels. Sharpen as usual.

I ended up freehanding on the stones, seeing what i could get, and left some gridth at the heel so i can hack at fish. It still needs some polish and elbow grease
