    I never thought to ask the length of the blade.

    Maybe one of you guys can give me a little input for the handle?
    I have never made a Wa handle before.
    What is a good handle height and length for a blade like this?
    Any advice is appreciated.
    Otherwise I am likely to create some grotesque, mutant, Wa handle.

    Length is 239mm edge length, height is 50mm at the heel and it is 2mm thick and tapers to the tip. I would suggest around a 150mm handle. The people who make handles are the ones to ask about proportions....I make mutant handles also so i have no idea lol. Oh also....I left it about .001-.002 thick on the edge so you are not working on a sharp knife...That part is up to you

    Looks great, Mike! How flat is the flat part? BTW, how hard would you expect it to be?
