In deed, in some of my knives near guard I have slab on left side about millimeter shorter/longer then on right side. After enjoying this knives for over one and half month I just noticed it because you pointed this out, but they are perfectly even in terms of width or thickness, polished and treated.
This did not really change anything to me. I think I can live with this for this price. It is forged, differentially heat treated and has best edge holding among all knives I tested (having only ZDP-189 ahead and sharing 2 place with Dozied D2, all other knives with common or top grade or exotic steels behind).
Special note - guard is best from what I see so far, quite secure and comfortable.
But most important - Lon can do any shape I want. He can forge out bended blades can not be done with stock removal. So he made me Bebut I was dreaming for a while. I have some idea what knives do I need and he just made me all what I came up so far.
I have another one just recently - I named it "Sting":
This one is perfect for cutting out pieces of sheaths or bags out of 1/4" thick tooling leather because of sharp tip (<45 degree), which I ask for and Lon made for me.
