    The picture of c-dawg's nakiri shows the cutting bevel and the blade face bevels quite well IMO! Though not sure how much taper has been forged in to the top part

    It may just be personal preference but I like a more robust nakiri as I use it for a lot of tougher veg, kabocha squash, rutabaga, sweet potato etc

    Whatever you come up with I'm sure will excel though, it's a case of finding what works for what you have

    I don't know if that's the stock geometry, but it looks like it ought to cut nicely

    Len, I think your right!!!
    This is the craziest knife I have ever ground. I have a feeling that with the taper and bevels on this thing are gona make it one of the sharpest knives I have ever made!

    Iv spent the last couple hours in mind warp. looking at woods and handle materials trying to figure out a combination that works with this blade.

    Im thinking Black G10 or horn for the furrel, and something subtle in figure and light in color like some of the Royal mahogany. OMG I just dont know..

    heres my delema. The blade pattern is SO BOLD I want it to stand as the center point for the knife, So Subtle and plain handle seems the logical choice.. Yet, subtle and plain is so NOT WHAT I DO! lol.. Which is making this harder then it should be.. OK so here I go.. Im asking you guys for some suggestions.

    Either a Dark handle with smallish light color furrel, Or a Light color handle with a dark/black furel? Or should I go supercutom, and use some of my sickest cocobolo burl and some ebony for the furrel?

    The customer left it up to you? I would let the spirograph stand out, but that's just my opinion.
