    santoku design

    So after the show and packaging up most of the knives I sold, I am working my way back into the shop.
    I was reading the santoku thread that Brad started last night and I decided to take a fresh look at the design.
    I made two templates both with improvements over the previous designs.
    I will say that the edge profiles on these two templates are exactly the same, with over 100mm of flat.
    So I want to know which looks better A or B?

    Del, I like the looks of Blade A
    One thing you can give and still keep...is your word.

    B looks better to me - the in-line handle angle is better in my opinion.

    A. I'd personally opt to bring the spine curve back a cm or so to make the tip a few degrees more acute, but option A seems to be in the right direction to me.

    I guess I should say that these designs are 165mm long on the edge and 53mm high at the heel.

    I think the spine curve behind the tip is okay.

    agree with echerub, I like the in-line handle angle better. B with less curve front edge & more acute tip; you'll have a profile similar to Shigefusa santoku.
