    Nothing wrong with the curve. It's just the point at the heel it's just the point coming back toward the handle.

    If the heel were slightly rounded, it would not be a problem, right?

    Dunno. I don't like rounded heels so I didn't try that, lol.

    I can't see how it would be any different one way or the other.

It was the stupidest move I ever made with a custom but like I said, there's plenty of room there. It might not be a problem for a long time. I dunno. I don't have issues with this sort of choil design on gyutos.
    Ahh..gotcha.

    Very Steve Jobs always looking for better design in daily things. I like the modified. In fact I prefer it.

    I think you should give the customer a choice on the two, but I like 2 better.
