    It give you a location to sharpen to.
    I also believe that when a knife is heat treated the steel expand and if the blade is real thin is will sometimes turn into a sin wave. This cut out area allows the blade room to expand.
    If anyone else has a reason I would like to hear it.

    I have always known the notch to be for sharpening as well as an aesthetic feature, but Cal's expansion theory makes sense as well
