I bought a Shun Premier 7" Santoku today, and after opening the box i realized there are two 1/2 millimeter holes on one side where the the blade meets the bolster.
The store will not do an exchange, and this basically forces me to spend more money to ship it back and claim my warranty!
I am worried that even after drying the knife with a towel the hole will trap water and eventfully rust . Should I be worried about that?
ascetically, it's more annoying than a stuck pixel in the middle of an lcd screen on a brand new laptop or Ipad!
