Handle Width when handle is laid flat on a table

If you have a unique handle width not shown below, let me know. Here is how to tell. Sit down and measure a knife that fits your specific hand with a ruler, or trace the handle on a piece of paper and then measure in two places as shown below. This should be a knife you reach for most of the time.
Generally folks that have a smaller stature like the 23/28 cm profile. Generally if you do not ask, I will make the handle around 28/33 cm- depending on the size of the kitchen knife. Small knives mean smaller handles. But I love to work with individuals, and can make the size you request. Please remember, there are always exceptions to the rule. People of smaller stature sometimes are used to 12″ blades and visa-versa.
