    I would actually say the spine has less curvature than normal, making the tip very lean and pointy. The edge does have some belly, just not a ton. If you do a lot of tip work, the KS is hands down a great knife.

    I know everyone says the profile is great and all, but I really did not like it. Too flat and not tall enough though I am aware that there is some variation from one to another

    I like the profile, my problem was the blade height. Mine was very used when I purchased it,it almost felt like a suji.

    I dunno. I sold it. It was probably 45mm or so. I prefer tall gyutos anyway.

    Ya the one I used was plenty like 50mm

    Mario hybrid is barley 45mm and I find that plenty as well... If you get smaller handle which I actually like after getting used to it height isn't as import
