Shoulders look good mate! Its keep the toe shape the same, just drop it 5mm rather than concaving. Think the shape looks good so dont change it, just reduce the dimensions slightly to make it work better

cheers john. found it a lot easier to blend the handle without the shoulders!!
will take in to consideration your advice. would prefer to keep the shape as it is as i tend to plant the front foot and just swing :D
have to say the heel shave i got from you is my new favourite toy!
will post pics when its finished (hopefully in the next week)

finally finished this. all thats left is to bind the handle and to apply a grip along with some magic wax. absolutely loved shaping it. i may do another. i dropped the toe a little along with the edges but left the high spine. picks up really well. looking forward to using it.
my finishing still needs improving. have a drum sander but unable to use at the moment due to lack of space. so all done by hand, exhausting!!

Outstanding. Once its had a few nets under its belt the finishing wont show anyway. Great job.
