After dozens of designs and prototypes I have chosen this as my interpretation of a kitchen knife.
Key features: Blade has long but smooth sweeping point making it easy for both novice and professionals to use regardless of knife handling styles. Hidden tang provides an elegant yet strong handle with stabilized materials (burl, micarta, g10) and reinforced with 3 fastening points. Blade can be had in either 3/32nd or 1/8th inch thick, blade length can be had in 6 to 8inches. Several choices of Stainless and Carbon steel available.
