    Lol, I luvs me some cankles. Like a Heiji, some thick meaty heels tapering up to a svelte spine... This has become one weird thread.

    Balut. Disgusting on multiple levels.

    Why does it have to be about that? You're the one bringing crap up.... I'm trying to make a point that you can't tell anything about blade geometry from the choil.

    So what? Does that affect the performance of the choil?

    Choil shots tell you as much about the geometry of a knife as a woman's foot tells you about the rest of her body.
