I'll be posting work in progress pics of a custom gyuto for a forum member. Comments and questions welcome.
Here is the design that was decided upon, basically, I increased the heel height and shortened the blade of my current suji design.
I simply adhered my template to the steel.
Grinding the heel cut-out, oat powered.
Profile almost complete, just need to clean up the neck/machi for a clean face when putting the handle on.
