    Sounds like 240 to 270 , flat ground off the edge with convex away for good food release and a Sab like profile in powdered stainless so far. I'm ok with a number of different steels. How bout the heat treatment? I'm seeing some great ideas here.

    A good compromising length is 255mm, it's smack in the middle of 240-270 and I'd be willing to settle on that. O1 or 52100 hardened to 62-63, modified Sab profile, 2.5-3mm at the spine, "s" shaped grind, real thin behind the edge, 52mm height, distal taper, tapered tang, integral bolster, no fingerguard/full bolster, fully rounded spine and choil, stabilized burl handle, 1 mosaic pin.

    Theory and I must be the same person. This is exactly what I had in mind (except 250 and O1). Regardless, it's good to see we're on the same page. If an S grind isn't doable, since not everyone is Bob Kramer, we'll still come up with a great alternative.

    I love 270s but if its a bit shorter I'm in. I also live the Sab profile all I do all day is search the web for vintage sabs. I also love carbon but would probably choose the steel based on what they do best. I'm cool with 50/50 too. I think it's a great idea and would be great for the forum. I like forgecraft but my favorite profiles are Sab and ks.

    It's a little ironic I think, that Pierre has basically already done this. How do we put Pierre in charge of Lamson?

    250-265 is fine for me. I'm easy.

    I know nothing compared to anyone else here but this does sound very nice. I would be in for one of these!!

    this sounds good but it's kinda hard to design the s shaped grind. it'll go through several prototypes that's for sure to get that right.

    255mm would be awesome. right in the middle. 52100 / o1 would be awesome. i'd still wanna find out what swedish carbon steel misono uses on their gyutos, that would be awesome too.

    I agree that this is about perfect...since this is a good old North American knife, why not call it 10" in O1.

    My exception is that I would vote for 3 pins with the middle being 1/4" (small dice) and the 2 outside as 1/8" (brunoise).

    Other than that, I agree with everything Theory said, especially real thin behind the edge, which may be the hardest part based on some of their recent knives.
