    Mine are 33, 31 and 28 mm at the heel. Because the edge on yours is not parallel with the tang/handle, you don't need too much height. When you put it to the board, the handle will point slightly upward. If you grip the petty lightly while doing this, as opposed to the fishing pole grip, you really get plenty of clearance.

    Yeah, when I use my petty on the board I use the "point" grip. I pinch for my other blades, but with the point grip on the petty I get plenty of board clearance and control.

    I really like the look of yours, Marko. I tend to lean toward the thinner, pointier tip.

    I think you nailed the profile. I personally wouldn't change it. Just scale it up, and down depending on the length.
    I'd say about 31mm for a 130 petty, 35mm for a 150, and 39-40mm for a 180.

    I know I'm late to the party but....

    less hump on the spine toward the tip and bring the tip up a bit.

    Late appearance often steals the show. Thanks Scott. Your opinion is always welcome.
