    Id like to be in on this, although I am not as knowledgable as most here on profiles and what not. Still love me a great knife.

    +1 to that.

    You can get vintage ones in carbon, though the blades are often bent. A new one in state-of-the-art semi-stainless, with an unbent blade and 3 brass rivets in the handle, would be a stone winner.

    I would definitely be in on this! I really like the look of the bottom sab K-fed posted. And since it's an 'hommage' to ODC's I think it should be carbon and western handle. Maybe a take on forgecrafts handles. But what do I know? Great initiative, Tom!

    The Sab profile seems to be a runaway favourite, so far. Do you guys like the slightly bellied tip, or is a flatter, more Kramer inspired tip better?

    Pierre's interpretation of the Sabatier profile performs extremely well. The curve of the edge starts a bit earlier, and adds a "gyuto flavor" to the profile, if that makes any sense. I'd have to flip a coin to decide which I favor, Pierre's or the classic.

    Pierre and I have bee discussing this all day, and we don't think it's a good idea to do an exact replica of anything. However, he would be more than fine with it being like his, but with a couple tweaks I'd like to see (and you guys). I'm thinking tighten up the ricasso, or even make it a bit angled, rather than curved. Thoughts?

    Here is an old Lamson 10" - it has a very nice profile and I did not change anything when I refurbed and rehandled it.

    Agreed that this knife should not be a copy, especially one of the custom makers we support on KKF.

    k-fed's bottom sabatier profile in O1 @ 61 HRC sounds grand to me. I had suggested a forgecraft profile as that strikes me as an american knife (no doubt the result of KKF). And an updated version would be nice. However, a sabatier in harder steel is something that doesn't exist in the market (at least to my knowledge) and this would have much broader appeal.

    Anyways, I'm down for a knife.

    I wonder what the numbers are without even a sketch? This is great, guys!

    Honestly, the input seems fairly consistent and I think that with a little bit of 'help' from Pierre that you will wind up making something that works great for most everyone. That being said, I will show my ignorance (even after a site and google search) and ask what exactly is the ricasso? Seems to be near the handle, but I can't picture it even with pictures.
    once in a while you get shown the light, in the strangest of places if you look at it right
