    @DeepCSweede -
    I think you mean octagonal when you say wa, or that is what I have been interpreting as.

    Yes Marko, you are correct - I was referring to the octagonal shape as wa - my bad on the confusion. See - even when I'm wrong most people know what I am talking about - Sorry for the confusion Rick

    I am leaning toward the Octagonal vs. D, but like I said, I need to spend a little time with it to make that determination.

    Marko - Both your Octagonal and D handles look fantastic - I wish you were still doing custom handles.

    That's OK, I'm confused more often than not.

    One advantage of octagonal is that it it neither right- not left-handed.

    Yes, that's the key. It can look drop dead gorgeous, but when it comes to function, it has to pass that test too, especially for the ones who have used a lot of different knives and know what they want. I think it is also expectations which correlates to price paid for the knife.

    Yes, I was referring to octagon as well. Like the nunchucks I had as a teenager. Very comfortable. Sorry for not having more knowledge on this. Really like your work.

    Having tried/used M's modified D, I prefer it on a gyuto. However, as for classic sleek lines, the octagonal is where it is at, especially on a yanagiba or traditional single beveled Japanese knife.
