Just about finished with my first pure kitchen knife. Still need to finish cleaning/sanding the blade and put the final edge on. The steel is cpm-s35-vn ground to about .005 " behind the edge. The handle is Hawaiian Koa with naval brass pins.
I am already working on a version with a wider heel to allow for more knuckle clearance. The knife is very light and thin. I want to make one for myself now, sadly this will be shipped off as soon as it is done. Ill try to take some better pics once it is all shined up. Comments & Criticisms welcome.

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 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.

IMO.
