    prototype 1.1 honesuki in 19C27 alongside Watanabe honesuki, and prototypes 1.0. Pictures aren't great, finish is only up to 320, but this one has a chisel grind tip, and is ground more like a honesuki (thicker) than a honesuki/petty. You can see it on one of the pics how much thicker it is at the heel.

    I needed to test a couple of things, so another prototype will be upcoming, before I will take on a batch.

    I brought both version 1.0 honesukis home and cut some vegetables with them. Both cut well, almost no steering.

    Petty/honesuki was supposed to be a hybrid knife, but I wonder how many people would want to use a honesuki (slightly less tall and flat profile than a typical J. honesuki) for some basic cutting outside of proteins? Just thinking aloud, but the truth is both blades are pretty sturdy, so should I make the honesuki a multi-purpose knife as well?

    I vote for a multipurpose knife (don't like un-itaskers).

    My plan is mainly to carve up chickens and pheasants so I would lean to the traditional for mine.

    135mm will be thinner, but 150mm will have to be either thinner or full thickness, one or the other, as I will not make 2 different versions.

    I will make it simpler for everybody.

    135mm - multitasker (petty/honesuki), thinner
    150mm - unitasker (honesuki), thicker(will steer if used to cut vegetables)

    If any of you want to switch between the two, that's fine.

    Marko, Looking good! Are you going to put your notched-kramer style handle on them?

    Yes, and these are either right or left handed

    Hi Marko,

    Could you please switch mine from the 150 to the 135 as I would prefer a multitasker. Thank you, and I will be in touch with a couple of questions about Saya making.
