    That knife was smaller - 230mm, but the balance point was still forward, I would guess 1.5" from the handle.

    Love the idea of a heavier knife. With big ham fists like mine, I like to have such styles of knives

    I will wait for a little more feedback on this knife before making some more knives in this geometry, but I am cautiously optimistic. Thanks folks.

    Just want to mention that asymmetric heavy chef's knife will be with a D handle, though there will be two versions - with machi and without.

    Thanks,

    Marko

    Marko, can you type us a quick summary of the heavy chef's knife?

    If I understand correctly, there are 3 types available?
    1. heavy convex ground (similar to Kato but from a thinner stock),
    2. sword ground (similar to Heiji)
    3. modified sword ground (sword grind on the right, and convex on the left)

    Further options are available for the handle:
    - wa (with machi)
    - wa/western hybrid (no machi)
    - western

    Is that correct?
