    I'm keen I like the idea of a Forgecraft profile, but would also be in for a Sab style, I would prefer carbon

    It's no problem. It's always a trade off of price vs quality. Depends what's more important to more of us. The artifex falls under $100 made by L&S but apparently not very good either. I'm still very interested how this'll turn out

    If we commit, make it happen and test it thoroughly, as we will, it's gong to be one hell of a knife.

    We'll try to keep it as low as we can.




    That's all anyone can ask.

    IMHO It would make it even more special to be made by one of us.
    Correct me if I'm wrong here Tom-

    I think a big part of this process is to help Lamson improve their overall product quality.

    Definitely carbon, 01 is awesome or 52100 maybe.
    Love the profile/style ideas guys, but I say meh to a 240, so I'm out.

    I understand why you'd do a 240 but I am in the same boat as knyfenerd, I just don't use 'em. I do still find the process and idea interesting

    Ouch!

    And yeah, a lot of it is because I think they can do a great job with it at Lamson (we are the designers and QC).

    My $.02:

    I love the profile of the sab that K-Fed posted

    Any chance of this being laminate instead of monosteel? That would allow stainless clad carbon, which might split the difference between the SS and Carbon guys.

    Having recently acquired a Mario Gyuto-hiki, I absolutely love the distal taper...my first with a very strong one, so I second that.

    As a lefty, I'm also keen on a lefty-friendly grind (though I've not had any discernible problem of this type on anything I've tried so far).

    Any thoughts for a name/logo to put on these? If I read the two threads right, it sounds like any form of "KKF" is out? Any graphic designers on the forum? I know someone who does that for a living, I can ask them to assist with this if it would be helpful.
    Remember: You're a unique individual...just like everybody else.

    I'll say again, this is a great idea. I'll put in a vote for western, carbon. Perhaps 250 on the edge would suit 240 and 270 people.
