It's really hard to show sharpness. Not sure if it shows up in this picture but in my original copy you can see almost what seems to be a machinist mark where the bevel was suppose to be made. The axe I held this weekend was much more comfy cause I didn't notice it being "sharp".
It would be easier to noticed if I had a regular beveled frame and compare it to this one. But the Tech guy said hopefully "this replacement frame won't be as sharp". So maybe it really could've been a quality control error.
