Ah, ok. It may have warped during the quench of the heat treating. If the whole blade is wavy, it's not the grind.

The blade faces on these ITKs are super wavy. They usually flatten out within a half inch of the edge, though. Overgrinds, usually at the heel, are not uncommon. An overgrind anywhere else down the blade can lead to problems.

Not sure if I'm clear...are these waves at the edge or within a half inch of the edge? Or are they higher? It would take a whole lot of sharpening and thinning to expose a hole that high up...

Sorry Jared,

It sounds like you might have a lemon. Send it back so I can take a look at it. Most likely I'll just give you a refund and you can try something else.

Hi Jared,

I got the knife back and the grind looks fine to me but I'm not sure yet until I take it to the stones.

I'll sharpen it this weekend and let you know the result.

This knife was a pretty easy fix. We resharpened it and sent it back to Jared. The edge came out nice.
