That pyramid logo stamped on the tang puts me in mind of a Geneva Cutlery Pyramid model. But it is unusual to find a triple ground full hollow pyramid model, so whoever manufactured it may be using a similar motif.
Exactly Ray... the blade just doesn't "look" proportionally correct.rayman said:Smythe,
The information you have provided here is incredibly valuable, thank you. The other thing, that is blatently noticible about this blade, is that it just doesn't look to be in the correct proportion. While looking at the width at the heel, you can see that it is too wide compared to its length.
I have been in hibernation from the forums. These last few weeks have been hectic, 3 new urgent projects requested by clients (and I thought we were in a recession), 4 computer crashes at the office (one or two not so bad but four hard drive crashes???), and the wife giving me the “eye”… so I did what any responsible father/husband would do… set aside my favorite hobby until things gets back to normal… after all the hobby does not pay the bills lolol.matis said:And... what made you hibernate?
However, even if it is the case (your arguments seem pretty strong), should this notch be of concern? Will it affect the blade stability during shaving, or honing? The whole concept of "blade stability" is (as of now - I took this sport merely a year ago) purely theorethical to me
