Yeah. Definietly a hybrid type of design. I like it a lot. How are people liking what you did to the ferrule?
Nice work, Will. I was thinking the same thing about the ferrule at tk.

Thanks very much for all the comments Guys
Yes its got a good bit of height to make it a versatile knife, It doesn't handle like a huge knife though as the taper on profile and width is quite extreme.
TK, yes I think the taper works on the ferrule, It does lend itself more to a nice comfortable pinch grip though. Zitangy requested taper on his two knives and this was my solution.
The feedback from the two damascus clad blue Gyuto's with the front taper has been good. Zitangy should be able to try his out any day now.
I forgot to add sizes for the handle on this one, I put this in the small/medium bracket, its 13cm long. 21mm height at the front 23mm at the back. Width is also 21mm tapering to 22mm. It tapers in a smooth convex way on the front sides to 12mm.
Thanks Aphex thats great to hear.
Yes. Good to know the handles are working out nicely. I still don't know if I'd want such a handle on my own blade. I'll have to stare at it a bit longer.
If you pinch grip, I dont see how it cant help. But you will be able to handle Judds suji soon and see
I'll do a sweatener on this one and offer it for £550 sterling all in
This lovely knife needs to go chaps! I have been offered a 20ft steel container at a great price, which I would really like to buy to make into a wood shop for handles/clean assembly area. So I'll drop a bit more on it to £520 posted, thats a healthy discount off list price!!!
Come on you know you want it...
