    If the tip was rounded, that would make a damn fine clam knife!

    For a parer, I would prefer a little choil or half bolster so my finger wouldn't ride up the sharp edge.

    This is the first one I've ever done with out a guard/bolster drop. I think that I'll put some jimps on top and bottom to prevent slipping. This one is very comfortable. Choking up is very nice with this design.

    We'll see. Lefty's mother in law won't buy one that is not flush. I think she might be right.

    I personally like a little more blade height for the reasons mentioned plus sharpening ease and longevity.

    Maybe a Burger, Wood and Rehandling place. Can't be too many of those in Montana.
    But......I'm going to have to wait for the global warming to kick in. Too dang cold there right now.

    Devin,
    Cool little knife. I like it.

    I used to have a couple of paring knives with flattened bulbous handles that fit completely in the palm of your hand. Made in France, received as gift I lots of knives to choose from when people visit, remarkable that virtually every one pick up one of these to try. Sadly , someone forgot to let go of one of them(3.5 inch blade), I still have one left if you're interested in an image

    A little late, but the bottom one is my fave.
    I'm with ecchef on this. Bottom one, loose the bolster replace with some jimps. I like the triangle very pointy shape.
