Hammering them out is the only way I think they could (maybe) be done cost effectively.
A Butchers set sounds outstanding. If you are going to include a leather case you should speak with Christian at Xian Leather: http://www.xianleather.com/ He can do anything in leather and his work is the best I've ever seen. He may be cost prohibitive but it's worth a shot. Below is a motorcycle seat he made for me:
Looks like Christian has some skills, very nice stuff.
the indian larry seat is tooooo cooool....ryan
OK, I'm back at this again after seeing in another thread (in The Kitchen Knife forum) the mention of what a couple of people are interested in getting for a butcher's knife.
Of the two knives shown here which are you most interested in for the larger knife?
Here is a picture of a garasuki with kiritsuke tip, I think I remember someone mentioning a preference for this knife as the Forum boner-ha ha. I really like the tip because the blade isn't too narrow and that makes it possibly functional as a petty.

What do you all think of it, but maybe with a western handle instead?
My apologies, Dave, I know the image is from the competition but it's only to throw ideas around.
