    I would like to preface this: The seller has agreed to exchange this if i want, but i want to be reasonable. I received a knife from one of the recommended stores for the holidays, and noticed that the blade had a slight bow to the side. This is my introduction into japanese style western knives, a 240mm guyto, and would like it to be a good experience.  Is it worth exchanging this blade for a straighter blade?

    Yes. Even though it's not much of a warp, exchange it.  Warps have a tendency to get worse with use.
