    Here is the profile of the last blade I made, what are your thoughts and what would you change or keep the same?

    Looks to have a nice flat, subtle curve and nice tip. What's the approximate length x heel height. I like it.
    once in a while you get shown the light, in the strangest of places if you look at it right

    Being very subjective, I would shorten the height to 47~48 mm and make it flatter a greater part of the edge to a gentler curve upwards to the tip, no changes to the spine or its drop. Having said this, it looks great they way you designed it

    A very nice, balanced profile overall.

    The angle of the tang relative to the cutting edge looks spot on to me. Not kicked up too high like some. Still, an extra 2-3mm in blade height at heel would balance the wrist angle a little better.

    Cheers

    Very nice profile IMO!!

    +1 for everything chinacats said.

    + Perfect length too. My sweet spot for height is 52, but 50 is still tall enough. I like slightly thinner tangs.
