    Paring knife question.

    Im working on a few stainless paring knives. And, As I started grinding the bevels I was unsure if I should take the grind full on the edge or stop it just short or the handle area.

    The handle will stop just behind the index finger groove. and there will be no bolsters. At least thats the plan at the moment.

    Heres a picture of the blades. Any input would be appreciated.

    No reason not go full with the finger cutout and no bolster.

    Full length Randy - it's more useful not to mention easier to sharpen.
