At least that has been my experience with 210mm pettys that I have tried to use in the past for this purpose.



    Yes my comments were about the santoku.

    Ok that's my fault I forgot all about the santoku. Thanks for the correction.

    Del,

    If I may, the Santoku is less obviously an Ealy design.

    The way the choil drops to the edge from the handle is an identifier of your knives. On the Santoku a shallower (less abrupt) curve here (like your line knife) would look more "Ealy like", basically, just sick!

    I also have the Shig Santoku, and your revised profile still has a higher tip / more belly. A lower nose and flatter profile edge, together with a flattened spine towards the tip (again, more like your line knife), would be the duck's guts (so to speak).

    Really looking forward to the finished result!

    Cheers,

    J

    Thanks,
    I took a break on that one, too much going on, and I have to be in the right frame of mind to work on designs.
    I can say I'm still not happy with what I have so far. I think the last one was a bit tall once I played with it a bit.
    A lot of the comments seem to point to flatter profile and less belly, I got some of the same comments on my early gyutos.
    I'll work on it when it feels right, I don't know if I'll have one done for the show.

    This was handed to me at my front door by a friendly postal worker:



    Great job, Del!
