I'm not talking about steel here; I'm talking about design. How does a maker come up with a design? This is a question I think a lot of new knifemakers ask themselves. Let's look at a basic hunter design. It's most often one of the first things a new maker tries. Even though we all have different tastes, there is something that makes one design look "correct" and another "wrong". Is there some ratio of blade length (tip to guard) vs depth (spine to edge) that just looks right? Or does it depend on other things? What about determining blade length to handle length? Is the ratio always similar or is is strictly by feel?
