    I'll work on one, just for you. I know you have brought this up a few times, so I guess it's time. I can be stubborn occasionally, but I'm feeling in a creative mood.
    I did a santuko a few weeks ago to a customers design. It is one of those I have tried to stay away from, but it may be time for that as well. That one turned out really well though and it's got me thinking.

    I'm liking the thinner profile, the way the blade comes together at the tip. I think in doing this you open the knife up to more functionality, more versatility. which in turn will probably generate more work/sales for you, which could actually be a bad thing!
    But I'm digging it, and will most certainly use this as an excuse to buy another knife from you

    While I like this new design as a new knife - I am impressed with the paring knife I received a couple weeks ago. It is like the perfect small boning/caping knife as I found out on that duck last weekend. I could skin and clean rabbit, squirrel, woodchuck, some fish, etc. with this knife no problemo. Offer both but never let the old design go by the wayside - it's gold.

    As a side note my HHH wharncliffe paring knife is the perfect compliment - just sayin'.

    Like the new design, but must admit, the old one does look a little problematic to me, with its large belly and high tip. The old one would need a very awkward grip, all over the blade, I'm afraid, and some kind of rocking motion I'm not used to.

    Nothing awkward about the old one - it's probably the best paring knife I've ever used - very surgical.

    I am working on a sheet of AEBL right now, cutting blades out, getting them ready to heat treat. I'll post some pics later on. I think part of the popularity of these is that while quite a few makers will make the larger chefs knives, none of them think about the smaller knives. Fo me I like them and playing with the design is fun, but like I said earlier its not always easy. I told a fried yesterday that the difference between a knife that is right and one that is almost right is like the difference between a fire and a picture of a fire.
    My original paring knife design has proven its worth and I will continue to make them, but I will continue to add a design here and there.


    Thanks,

    Just got one of the original pairing knives the other day and used it to hull a bunch of strawberries. The wider/more bellied than usual blase seems like it would not so well with this task but it performed amazingly well. Better than any other paring knife I own (sab, and array of forschners). Still in the honeymoon phase of course but so far I am very pleased. New shape looks nice too though.
