Looks good to me. The question now is whether or not the geometry is right. Will it do the fillet without letting the flexible blade 'float' (which makes a wavy cut)?

What you have is fine for the KITH. If you have an opportunity to test it for real that would be educational .....

I have embarked on the journey that is KITH! I have started the design phase, after selecting the various materials I would like to use. My hang up in design is wether or not to do a hidden tang. Personally I can’t see where a hidden tang leaves anything behind structurally, over a full tang. My question is wether or not a wider tang will affect the function of the knife (flexibility for this exercise).
Anyone with a few fillet knives under they’re respective belt care to weigh in??

I have made fillet knives with both handle types and find no practical difference with regard to the function of the knife.......
