What is your favorite blade shape?Speaking from a purely aesthetic point of view.Try & put aside the knife's uses & think of the blade shape that you find the most appealing "Just to look at".Like when you see the knife for the first time & you're like WOW!

I myself love the way Kris blades look,also a nicely done wharncliff is very appealing to my eyes.


You can vote for more than one.


Thanks,

Reverse Tanto and Drop Point, I always liked the reverse tanto, too bad you don' t find it so often.

Flat ground, leaf shape ground thin for slicing. Real thin, and real sharp. I don't pry, I don't chop, etc. Joe

Clip point, drop point and spear point in that order. A sleek, non-chunky tanto can do it for me too.

Ever since I saw a BM970... I've always loved the Emerson Specwar tanto.

It's kind of difficult "aesthetically" speaking, to separate the blade shape from the entirety of the knife, but my best "stab" at it would be:

1. Recurve / hips

2. Spear Point / breasts!?

3. Clip Point / small of the back

. . . . . . . . . :) . . . . . . . . .

For every day use, I am in a toss-up between a regular clip point and a hawkbill. For general use, the clip point is more versitile. But for cutting and ripping things up, the hawkbill is unbeatable in my book. The blade shape is particularly well suited for it. But it makes for an awkward folder. And it is a bit too specialized for other tasks.

Recurve because it's listed, but Spanto, Nightmare and Hissatsu are pretty cool.

I likes me a nice recurve. Second, a drop point, third a clip point. Sometimes 2 and 3 get reversed, depending on my mood.

I am a sucker for the Drop point. It is plain jane but highly functional.

Clip points are nice. Aesthetically, recurves are the most beautiful.

I'm also fond of the hawkbill.

I can't think of anything more appealing to me then a nicely done Wharncliff.

Kris for sure. It looks so damn exotic.

How can this not be appealing?
