    This one was in pretty good, like new condition, just boring. [​IMG]

    Although it had a really bad factory over grind (AKA - "hole in the edge") about 1" in from the heel. I spent more time dealing with fixing that than thinning and etching combined. It's not 100% fixed but at 90% I'd say it's a huge improvement. The profile was also adjusted a bit as a result of the over grind. BTW, this is typical Shun, just a bit worse on this particular knife.

    What do you think?
