Some of these GD's come out with weird bevels. The one I bought recently, with the wicked point, has a bevel that resembles a sine wave. It matches the edge unfortunately. Put the edge on a flat surface and it touches on three points, the rest is up in the air. It's going to take some serious breadknifing to get the edge flat before I can start to hone it. Beats me how anyone is supposed to shave with something like that. Maybe I should send it to you Jim, now you have the perfect stone to hone wonky razors . Wood scales on it are very poor, something else I'm going to have to rectify.
