Really like the shape of the handle. It looks comfortable.

Needs more blade width....
Toooo narrow for a 170mm unit....
Just my honest first impression....

Looks like it would make a mean sujihiki. At 170mm I dunno if I'd call it a petty.
Awesome looking knife either way! I can't wait to see it all polished up though.

I really appreciate the comments all, Ive got a version of this with 195 mm blade and about 50 mm at heel.

I notice how lots of chef knives have the Wa handle. How does having a contoured handle w/ palm swell compare to the Wa, as far as using? For me , I love the feel of good palm swell but almost always use a pinch grip or with my index finger along the spine. I prefer the end of the handle to fatten up and allow the knife to be drawn with thumb and forefinger more securely. Im no chef though, what do you guys prefer?

I despise Yo-handles of the pictured design... being referenced as with palm-swell. They are as cumbersome, ineffectual and maddening as any Cutco P.O.S. in existence.
