What do you think?

ANSWER: Getting there.

Can you move up the image so the knife tip is not cut off? It is OK to have the top of the handle (which looks really weird) cut off by the red block.

QUESTION: Hi
The image is the entire knife (see attachment) It's one of those short handled carving knives. Do I need to use another illustration?
What else might I do with this cover?

Thanks again.


Demetrius

Answer
I guess the silhouette of the knife just looks odd at the top because of the thumb and handle sticking out. If you could bring that up so that the top part is cut off by the red box, the tip of the knife would be showing down below and you should be set. Also double check the thickness of the title font.
