    I have a Western handle design in my head that would have a heavy bolster (a guard) and if needed, a metal endcap. Along with the weight of the handle, I am pretty sure I can bring the balance point closer to the handle even on heavy knives.

    I am going to solicit more of feedback on the gap before I make a decision, but consensus seems to emerge that a wide gap is not necessary.

    I would start the bolster right after the choil, no gap. And I like knife to be blade heavy, even in a pinch grip I want the blade to balance in front of my pinch.

    It's quite difficult to start a bolster without any gap with S geometry (think Shigefusa Western handle). On full convex blades it should not be a problem. In any event, I will try to keep the gap as small as possible.

    What are your thoughts on 255mm heavy chef's, with one of the geometries (Mizuno, Kato, Heiji), with a Western handle, Coca-Cola shape, in PM stainless, 62-63RC?

    Not a fan of western handles, but sounds good otherwise...

    Wa version I can do reasonably well. Western, has been going well so far.

    Ground my first true asymmetric grind. So far so good. Taking blade home for test cutting. Pics tomorrow.

    This one will have a western handle with SS bolster.
