We set creating a thickness near the handle and hamoto part of blade end, the center of gravity lies near the user’s hand. This gives the knife a good balance, and it is devised in a way that it is a joy to hold. However, This takobiki knife is very thin blade. so made a little thickness of the blade top, because to prevent blade damage and to get nice final cutting.
