Kramer Shun Bevel Question

BDub Nov 13, 2010 05:10 PM

I am a lefty interesting in buying an 8-inch chef's knife from the Shun Kramer line at Sur La Table. The SLT employees told me that the bevel is asymmetrically ground, even though to me it looked even (admittedly without my glasses). Since the only asymmetrical Shuns I know of are in the Pro lines, I'd appreciate if someone could clarify how the Kramer knives are ground. Thanks.

    Never heard of it being asymmetrical, but you should check with KAI (Shun) just to be sure. The response I got from them was pretty quick. Sorry for not being more helpful.
