Thanks Steve. Contrary to what the seller stated "blades lightly sharpened but near full", for whatever it is worth I disagree with that statement.
On the pic I requested, the main blade tip is barely short or barely reach's the bolster. That indicates a reprofiled blade due to more than light use and sharpening. The blade tip should extend about halfway roughly (depending on knife pattern) into the bolster.
Not the end of the world but description is inaccurate in my opinion in addition to his "wishful thinking" added note suggesting it is a rare factory error.
As they say, "buy the knife, not the story". One"s eyeballs and a good knife read always tell the story for you.
That man is a success who has lived well, laughed often and loved much; who leaves the world better than he found it; who never lacked appreciation of earth's beauty or failed to express it; who looked for the best in other's and gave the best he had.
