    I read the word ergonomic. They knife shapes and styles are unusual and really eye catching. If they do their jobs particularly well and they don't share the same basic look as many great makers, you have great potential. What you do already is functional art. Have you ever used one of these ?

    I love all sorts of new designs, even if they don't work. At the very least, it'll give someone out there an interesting idea and then it grows into something new.

    I have seen many modern knives out there, but nothing really in the kitchen knife department.

    I think you will have a market, its going to be much smaller because the knives are more "collection" than "function" 800-1100$ in damascus can be justified if you are willing to grind out and use it for the next 10 years. but if it just goes into the closet/drawer/whatever and is brought out to show people thats a much smaller market. its not to say you wouldnt turn some of them and have some people buy them, they just probably dont have the market that "every day function" would, but we could all be wrong ;-)

    I kind of liked the carving sets.

    and since you are off in the far north, maybe you could do a video breaking down a whale.
    and cutting up some blubber into chewable sized pieces.

    I don't think these would sell well here.

    Creating new just for the sake of creating new is worthless without purpose. If there is a function behind the design I say go for it. Function over form any day for me. These just look fugly imho. Your knives are already way better than this

    I like the first one and the last one on that page but its only cause the remind me of sharks haha I agree with JayHay Practicality over vision. If the knife looks beautiful and is going to be hanging in a glass case whats the point of buying it in my opinion but If it looks beautiful and works like a champ then you got my vote ! Besides some of those knives look like they may be too belly heavy and just look uncomfortable to me! I think if any one can make them better your gonna be the best bet Pierre!!!
