distal taper 2

Distal taper drawings

At bottom is the distal taper flat grind and at top is the parallel flat grind. Each image includes both side and overhead views. As you can see, the angle is more “blunter” with the parallel spine. The spring will be thinner and not as strong with the distal-taper spine. However, unless you simply want to punch holes with your blade, the knife with the distal-taper spine will be more efficient at cutting chopping (Jim Crowell drawings)
