A hole would definitely add a place for gunk to collect. I was very, very, pleased that the new Kitchen Sharps knives don't have holes in the blades.bh49 wrote:Why would you need a hole on the kitchen blade. It only will make difficult to clean the knife.

It's a Santoku which, to me, means it has more in common with a Chinese cleaver than with a meat cleaver. Blade thickness is just over 2mm. I would not use mine for chopping meat with bones, and would advise against such use.SpyderEdgeForever wrote:Is the Santoku one heavy-enough to use for heavy-duty chopping of meats with bones such as beef and pork ribs, or probably better to use it for lighter-weight food cutting?

I respect and share Spyderco's business decisions in many aspects, but a hole (only for trademark) in a kitchen knife is even more no-go as the same hole in other fixed blades. It has no function and is no help in use. Other people may and will think opposite and they have every right to do so
It is a challenging dilemma for sure. We're currently working on the optimal size hole and optimal hole/wall geometry to make cleaning easy. If we can do it right, then we might even win some like you and Peter.bh49 wrote:Sal,sal wrote:We need the hole in a certain location for a trademark.

I understand trademark issue, but I am very glad that none of my 7 Spydeco Kitchen knives do not have them. In my honest opinion, if kitchen knives will have small hole like all fixed blades, it will be difficult to clean them completely, unless use a special tool, which will go into hole. A large hole would solve this issue, but probably will not look right.
