That is absolutely beautiful, man. I don't know the knife terminology regarding false edges, but I do know that with swords, the edge towards the holder (of a double edged sword), is often called the "false edge" despite being fully as sharp as the "true edge."
Nice pattern-welding! A false edge just means that it's the one pointing at the wielder, not that it's literaly a "fake" edge. So yes, it's still a false edge.
