Countertop: How high is too high?

We're putting in new cabinets and thinking of raising the countertop two or three inches, from the current 36" which has always felt low to 38" or 39" in order to get a 6" toe kick and also raise the deep sink we want. There will be open shelving above, so I'm not too worried about the countertop to shelving height.

I'm 5'9" and my DH is 6'1". Any opinions on how high is too high for a counter?
