I've had this Hiromoto for a bit over two years. It's proved difficult to sharpen, and when I sighted it today, I found this: I'm new to nicer knives like the Hiromoto, and never thought to sight it for straightness when it first arrived. I'm a guitarist, and I always sight a guitar's neck before purchasing...I guess the same principle holds true. I don't know if the knife arrived like this, or if it happened afterwards; The knife has never been abused here, to my knowledge. I know that the man who made Hiromoto knives recently retired. My question is, what are my options at this point? Thanks in advance.
