Guys, it's looking like we're going to do O1, but if possible, maybe we can do stainless down the road, or as a small batch. It really depends on how Lamson can swing it. I hope this becomes a huge success and we can all come up with a great suji, petty, parer, etc. But, one thing I've learned is focusing on one thing at a time always yields the best results.
yeah one thing at a time would be best. research, study, practical use, experimentation, QC is most important! =D
I think a matched pair would be the shiznit. Two identical knives made to the design goal. One in 01 and one in AEB-L, or S35VN, or CPM154 or ... any of the "killer" stainless that is now available. I bet they could pull that off with ease.
Lot of good judgement and common sense coming from these posts. The element of practicality , using an old , perhaps historic company like Lamson, and collaborating with a group of people willing to put their egos aside for the greater good makes for a rare experience. I will help any way I can.
I must have missed something, but for the past year and a half or so I have never, ever seen a positive post about Lamson. Chef Niloc even used to have "Lamson sucks" as his signature. So what's changed?
Wow, I work for two days, and this thread jumps 10 pages. I've got some reading to do before I express some ofth ideas I've had. Tomorrow maybe
