    The prototype is now in the hands of the next tester. Although I am reserving my critique until after testing is complete so not to bias the other testers, I will say that I am very positively impressed by the prototype. I can't wait for the production knives to become available.

    Earlier in the thread questions were raised about the profile, and I made tracings of the prototype against three knives that may be familiar to members: the Masamoto 24 cm KS wa-gyuto, the Misono Swedish 24 cm gyuto and the Forgecraft 10" chef's. The prototype profile is in red; the other knife in black.

    Masamoto KS



    Misono



    Forgecraft



    I'll also share a few photos of the saya Tom made for it. It's a really nicely fitting saya, in every way equal to Eamon's sayas.

    Thanks for the sharing the profiles! I'm concerned about the thick neck, I tend to find thinner neck knives more comfortable.

    That's funny, I'm completely the opposite! Different strokes for different folks...

    The prototype measures 23.45 mm; the Misono Swedish is 23.10 mm. I think the hybrid handle is throwing your eye off.

    i'd like to have an idea on how much this thing would cost so i could actually start saving up for it. i don't make a lot of money and the cost of my standard of living is much different from you guys so i'd like to know whenever possible.
