> Is there a dent on the left side of the blade in the first picture or is it an optical illusion?

There is indeed a dent there. This particular blade has been sitting in a box for a few years and I pulled it out to experiment with putting a hollow in the back. I didn't resharpen it before buffing the bevel as shown in these pictures, and it's possible that when it was last sharpened (a few years ago) I didn't get out all the damage.
