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 canít 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 theyíre 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.......

Welcome aboard, Nate! Curious about the 'I told you so'. My company will probably leave later today or early tomorrow, any time after that would be a good time to call .....
