Thread: Gentlemen and ladies! I need your opinions.

  1. #1

    Gentlemen and ladies! I need your opinions.

    I will be designing a series of carbon steel butcher knives in O1, with throw back profiles and handles.

    This is an opinion thread, not so much as a design thread. I will be designing 5 pieces, in O1, bolsterless, nice wood handles, and simple pins. These will be cost effective (read affordable to damn near everybody) I am not looking to turn big profit on these, so they are going to be attractive to a broad group of users.

    My thoughts are:

    1. Bull nose butcher
    2. Scimitar
    3. Boning
    4. Chef
    5. Fillet
    6. Maybe a utility/petty

    I would like to know what you would like to see, in terms of general length, height, spine thickness, maybe geometry.

    So, lets have it... What are your thoughts?

    1,2, or 3.

    9-10 inch bullnosed butcher, something along in the lines of vintage american, somewhat convexed blade face, i hate the fact that the wide blade face sticks to meat all the time when portioning.
    12 inch scimitar, something along the lines of victorinox scimitar
    160mm stiff boning, something in between a standard western stiff boning knife and a tojiro dp gokujo boning knife

    these are what i'd like to see..... =D

    A boning knife with a narrow blade like the old Dexter carbons would be sweet. I like the guard on the Gokujo - it's a good safety feature for cold hands and meat.

    12" scimitar, not too wide of a blade road, with a bit of substantial handle for good leverage- not too dainty
    and at Least 9" and very thin/narrow filet knife with a little bit of flex too it.
    at least these are what I've personally been looking for...

    It's great to see the scimitar getting some love. It's quite possible I'm blind but I rarely see these discussed here.

    Don't have any real opinions, but I'll definitely get a boning knife and a bullnose. If the prices are as good as you say
