How straight should jointer knives be?
I took two sets of jointer knives in for sharpening, an 8" and 6". When I took them out of the wrapper to mount them they didn't look quite right.
The edges are sharp, but more like a micro serrated edge. I put them against my Starrett square blade and they aren't really a perfectly straight edge either.
Here are some pics of a knife from each set. See the light shining between the edges? They are all about the same level of wonky.
So is this typical/acceptable? I've never seen new knives so I don't know what to expect.
