Hey everyone, I'd like to thank you all for this. Any and all feedback is much appreciated!
Some things I would like for you to consider about my own thoughts about the knife (spoiler alert):
Things that I like, or am keeping for now:
Things I don't like, and am changing:
Thickness at choil
-If I remember right it's slightly over 2mm at the choil, and this makes it too light. I'd like to get closer to 3mm ideally. Right now the balance is right at the front of the handles, above the choil. I'd like for it to be one inch forward or so.
Thickness at tip
-The tip area (one-two inches from actual tip) is really thick for me. Ideally they will be noticeably thinner, and will transition into a Full Flat Grind towards the tip.
Grind (Little details, slight changes)
-I'd like to get a more asymmetric grind. For a right handed user this means a flatter left face, and on the right it means a more definitive blended grind, that transitions into a full flat grind towards the tip.
Of course construction wise, fit and finish, will gradually get better with each knife I hope. Choils will be rounded better, spines will be rounded better, etc. They will also be straighter and more even all around.
