    A little bit of heel rounding can be a good thing, just because it will reduce "heel bite" which is when you arent paying attention enough, and catch your hand on the sharp/pointy 90 degree heel while handling the knife. Especially for people who are used to the giant safety gaurd/bolster of german blades.
