    The first one is just a hair over 2 inches at the heel and the second one is right on 2 inches.

    Most people find that the perfect height for a chef knife.

    The height is just right at around 2 inches. Where is the balance point now that you removed some metal?

    I thought I would post a pic of the handle comparison as well as the original blade and the reprofiled one(the lower one for both pics).

    Part of the reason for reworking the handles was to adjust the balance point back to the original point, which was right ahead of the bolster. Part of the reason is that they were a bit fat at the bolster.
