Good question, Joe. The shop would have farmed the work out.

Coach--

I was just thinking out loud about when I have to carve a roast. A flat surface on the left side would help me to keep the slices the same thickness.

You got a nice knife. It is one of my favorites. But I never got the longer blade.

Larry:

My son lives in Japan. He says that they make a knife that will cut sushi precisely and paper thin. They use a steel called honyaki.

It is ground and honed like you are describing. He says they are pricey but they will slice thin and straight. Check it out.

Always learning!

Thinking that we own some quality Japanese knives, but probably nothing like described on that website.

Thanks for sharing.

Wow, I went down that rabbit hole and discovered a whole new world of knives and terminology.
Just not your simple whacker or stabber.
