This is an interesting one - a thicker knife with a thin grind. It is slightly concave on both sides so it's very thin behind the edge like a laser, but it grows to workhorse size at the spine. It has very good food separation, but don't get this knife if food release is all you're after. I like to think of it as a "comfort laser"... if that makes any sense. The handle is light-weight for this length blade, so even with a lot of distal taper it still has a forward centre of mass, shown in the pictures below. 267 mm edge length 54 mm heel height 52100 high carbon steel 248 grams 4 mm spine thickness into handle Tapered spine and grind (internal taper) Heart shaped handle, removable beeswax install Black Juma ferrule with brass spacer and pine wood. $420 USD shipped Thanks for looking!
