Maybe it's been warped for a while but you never noticed it until this fresh cut made it apparent.
Thanks for the advice. Makes perfect sense.
I think it may be the fresh grind that clued me into it in the first place. I just went and looked at my blades again and can't really say for sure that it looks warped any more on the right than on the left.
I may just try playing on it until I'm happy and then not get it cut so aggressively next time. I've lost about 25 lbs since my last blade cutting. Perhaps I was used to a "shallower" cut and this one was just too harsh for my liking.
