Came across this photo and thought it may be interesting to "profile geeks".

Bob Kramer, "Salty's Style"
Devin Thomas ITK Prototype
Masamoto Honyaki

I think that may have been ground down... ;)

IIRC Salty requested the profile specifically when custom ordering from Kramer.

IMO you just can't beat the Masamoto's profile. Once you graduate from rock-chopping, that's one hell of a useful shape right there.

NO ChoP!

Is that DT a 270MM?

I have looked at this picture more then a few times over the years. I now own two of the three knives, again probably because of this picture.

That's a good view
That Masamoto profile always looks the business

The Masamoto profile will always be my favorite. But I wouldn't be too upset if I found something I like better. Just out of curiosity do you have a preference yourself, Salty? Or is it more like a different day, different flavor kind of thing?

I believe he favors his mizuno tanrenjo profile for his "all rounder"

Yep, the miz has the most miles on it.

I like a pointy tip and a decent flat spot like the Masamoto and others. I also like them sub 50 in height.

That's the finest looking Kramer I've ever seen.

Maybe it's just me, but I really like the KS for rock chopping?

I come back to this post again and again to look at these three knives. Thanks for posting this.

I have started to appreciate a flatter profile, the DT ITK and Massamoto both have really awesome profiles, I am not a big fan of the "German" type profile, like a wustie or henckels, I see the Kramer was ground down or changed a little bit, the profile is a little different than stock

Salty requested a modified profile from Bob.

For me, Devin wins, but what do I know...
