    I would think a longer knife does need a higher tip than a shorter one to have the same tangent. Supposing both will be held in the same way of course.

    Why would you go off tangent instead of absolute height?? That doesn't make any sense to me.

    High tip + long knife = elbow in the air

    With these knives traditionally the tip is at the level of the ferrule's bottom, no matter what height you may find at the heel. I guess the cooks worked with a very restrained space.

    Here's an update. I may refine it a touch but the main thing now is to decide on the handle. Holding it left-handed, I could see myself using it but right-handed is a bit wonky. Son specified that if the handle was to be removed, it should be sent to Kaleab. Regardless, here ya go.

    In case you can't tell which is the Sab, it's the bottom one.

    looking good. To bad he wanted the handle off. But it will look just as good or even better with a new one.

    What is exactly the problem with the handle, and should you really have it changed, or do you have other options?

    This is why I always have something propping it up on one side.

    Yeah, looks like it needs to be replaced. Though it would be cool if that old handle could be used for something else, don't know what though. Nice work so far, love seeing the progress!
