250 by 54 Study in hollow grinding

    This is a hollow grind left/right on a convex base, fairly thin.
    The hollow makes this significantly lighter than a standard convex grind, even a thin one.
    It remains rigid though due to the think spine, starting at 3.4 mm with a full distal taper to ~1.7 two inches from the tip. A very interesting study for me. I can't wait to see how it cuts. Food release should be stellar.
    This is pretty much finish ground on the grinder. I am debating finishing it just like this, maybe take it a bit finer grit on the grinder, and just clean it up a bit. The grind isn't quite cosmetically perfect, so may be a tester / pass-around. We'll see...

    I'd be interested to hear what you all think about it.

    I'd be interested in trying it out!
    Looking good so far

    Noted Marc. I am not sure what the fate of this knife will be just yet. I am pretty excited to get it finished and do some testing with it myself. I may very well pass it around after.
    Might even raffle it off or something.

    I am working on v2 tonight. I've learned a few things that I want to implement. I don't see a need to take that hollow all the way to the heel, nor the tip. Otherwise I like the height of the hollow in theory. Testing will tell....

    Raffle or auction would be great.
