    I think I'd rather have it flare a little at the bottom.

    This Padam Suga Knife is from about a year ago. If it had a downward curving handle and jimping on the spine it would be pretty close to what people are discussing now in this thread. Those seem like relatively easy changes for the HI kamis to implement, especially the kamis who are already used to making the Padam Suga model.

    On the question of sharpened swedges and legal issues: It shouldn't be hard to sharpen a swedge with a file, or to take the edge off a sharpened swedge. Given the multitude of laws against double-edged blades, it might make more sense to ship with an unsharpened swedge and let customers who want it sharp make it so with a file.
