I've bought a Takeda yanagiba (actually it's a sujihiki: double bevelled) from CKTG. It is a great knife, but unfortunately it is a bit too thick behind the edge. See the pics.

Has anybody suggestions for getting this thinned - and have the kuruchi left reasonably intact?

I've tried to find someone in the Netherlands (where I live), but unfortunately I've not found anyone. Then I contacted Tim, but he suggested contacting Takeda directly. Does anyone know how?

Thanks!

If the postage isn't overwhelming I would send it back to Takeda. And I say this with no prejudice against Ken or his skills. It's just that I would want to give the manufacturer the chance to put forth his best effort.

Takeda has been known as of late for his thicker knives some are and some arent?

Was it a left-handed version perhaps?
