a yes and a yes to 50/50 grind! =p
if it's gonna be carbon, we gotta find out what swedish carbon steel misono uses on their swedish line!! =D
no bolster would help keep the costs down though
I do like the Sab idea, but maybe without a finger guard at all, but the same profile

Awesome. This is what we need.
I'll tell you, we got a definite "I'm interested" from Lamson, so this is a definite possibility. It'll take time to figure it out, but the first part is figuring out a profile. Here's where the membership comes in huge. Let's figure out a profile. If you guys have one you love, or elements you love, attach a sketch/photo/whatever showing me what you would like to see. First things we need to figure out are profile and while we do this, there's no reason we can't figure out the steel type.
So attach those pics, guys!
No preference on steel other than that it be something these guys do well, Western, 50/50 profile, agree with concerns about sharpening heel if going Sab route. For handle, I'm thinking reminiscent of vintage simplicity in terms of shape and size, but with fit and finish of modern rehandles using upscale and unique wood and finishing touches, e.g. custom or or brass pins, etc. Something that pays homage to the vintage look while clearly showing that it is modern and gorgeous. I'm definitely interested in this.
was thinking of brass pins as well
Any vague ideas about a price point?
the materials and the design will pretty much dictate that me thinks.Any vague ideas about a price point?
yes to a sab profile +1
