    Well, in that case! About 12mm on the heel, 64mm on the edge with a very flat profile. I could go single bevel, or double...either way.

    I might even give it a k-tip .

    Oh...to stay on topic...is there a reason that k-tips seem so popular? Is it just looks or is there a functional reason?

    Arrgghh, I feel like the lone defender of the honor of the bread knife. You can cut bread with a gyuto just like you can cut fish with a sujihiki. Are you all rice eaters here? Or wonder bread aficionados? Try a gyuto on a woodfire brick oven sourdough rye bread and sweep up the chips after you are done crying!

    I still don't use a bread knife, but after handling a few nicer ones, I see the allure. Still don't own one, but ya know....

    If bolsters don't do anything functional that you like, how do you feel about the look of a peened "bolster" (or ferrule). The only knives I have without some visual change at the front of the handles are my Harners and my Itinomonn. I general, I find a knife looks boring without one, but Butch and Dan manage to make a knife look great with nothing more than two scales and some pins. I wish I could figure out how.

    Don't forget Don Nguyen Lefty . Some of his don't have the two tone scales, and so the only change is a bevel.

    Way back when I used to not put handles on knives lol...it was because I didn't feel I had the skill to do a proper bolster, and to me a simple transition from scales to blade was very plain. There's only so many angles you can cut the scales at, lol. I didn't like the look of wa handles at all (all I'd ever seen were stock ones), mostly due to the large transition in diameter from ferrule to machi. When I first found custom wa handles, it was a revelation. I prefer how wa handled blades cut, as well as how they look with a proper custom. But even on those, if there's a large transition in height from the ferrule to the machi, its a bit of a turn off for me.
