comment Is the winding פ in this sefer torah kosher?
@DoubleAA Many of them. There are other issues with the sefer torah (least I think they might be issues) for another post later.

@SethJ the owner. I would not take his word for it though, hence the quotes.

@SethJ I was told that this was a "kabbalistic" torah. Not sure what that means though.

@CharlesKoppelman, this is not one of the halachot that I know as of now, but it is the type of mistake that I am talking about

I understand what the words mean, but to clarify, if there is any klee that does any sort of borer that will immediately go on food this is not an issue, because it is considered part of the way that we eat?

@DoubleAA, for some reason I thought this was a classic case of something that was not allowed, looking in shimirat shabbat again now EDIT: can't seem to find volume two right now, sorry.
