So I was inspired by Sara's minimalist knife pouch thread the other day and decided to streamline my kit and picked up a couple pouches.
I chose three knives that I've been using most lately and a few other small items and voila here it is.
Suisin 270 IH Gyuto, Kochi 240 KU Gyuto, DP Honesuki, couple spoons, tweezers and a peeler. Thanks for the idea guys.

That's very similar to what I carry. I had a 30 slot or so bag that was just way too cumbersome. Now I carry a 5 slot Wusthof bag. 2 petties, 2 sujis, 1 gyuto, a ceramic rod and a Peeler.

Nice Kuhn Rikon peeler, those and the Swissmar are great.

Thats pretty sweet. I have a similar pouch that Dave shipped my rehandled Sabatier in that I use when I don't feel like carting around the whole kit as well.

My mistake, it's a Messermeister bag:

AJ-
You've got a tiny birds beak on the leftmost suisin

Thanks Jon. I looked the knife over today and the tip seems to have a continuous curve up to the point. So maybe it is an optical illusion in the photo, or I don't understand what you mean by bird's beak.

the left-most knife looks like the tip has a hook shape to it in the picture... imagine if you took your index finger and made a slight hook shape... thats the kind of shape i'm talking about. it might just be an optical illusion, but it sure looks like a birds beak tip from here.
