    My honest opinion which of course be wrong, shot down, etc. on closer inspection. I see the curve goes somewhat into the handle section. My personal preference is for a curve like there is but not going into the handle section. I just think a curve rather than straight edge would be more comfortable. Wouldn't mind incorporating that in the custom Pierre is making for me. With permission of course. Dave can I put a curve there on my custom. Not the same as yours but it's your idea. I want to keep handle straight then curve it. Just looks more comfortable. I think it's a great idea.

    Revision looks like what i was thinking was already done on leftys pettysuki. Nonetheless I still prefer #2 seems nicer aesthetically and even if just psychologically appears more comfortable.

    The curve is nice but i don't think it brings anything to the knifes performance(maybe ergonomics, if so im all in for #2).

    And for you as a maker won't this create a little more hazzel when cutting up the blade blank etc?

    I like the original design. Those curves and whatnot usually end up doing weird things to my hand.

    I'm not liking #2. To me, it looks like you sneezed while at the grinder.
    From a design strength standpoint, a radiused corner is inherently stronger than an angle. Not that I believe that a suji would be used in a way that would push the steel far enough to develop stress cracks.
    If you're going to incorporate a curved choil, don't do it by taking material away, but by adding it.

    Here's where I'm at on this....I'm thinking that I like a rounder vs sharp transition than the original design offers but I'm not sold on going with #2 just yet. I'm thinking that there's got to be something in between these two designs to best fit most people's wants. I'm all for tweaking on an individual basis though.

    Dave, I agree with you. I was going to vote for 1.5, but could not find a button for that choice

    Would your hidden plunge line come out as cleanly on Ver. 2?
