    Cool Christmas Gift Sets Ideas

    Hi folks,
    I would like to produce a few sets of knives in time for Christmas.

    Was thinking 240mm gyuto, 275mm suji, and 90mm paring knife, all matching wood, octagonal shape handles. Might do the gyutos in S-geometry. Paring knife will feature a ground radius at the ferrule tip, for a comfortable hold. For the spacer, I was thinking of using a white spacer instead of metal.

    For wood, I am getting a quite a bit of wood from stabilizing shortly, so there will be high-end to standard choice selection. I will let customer to pick the wood.

    What do you think of the idea? I wanted to do the sets for quite a while now (and not just these, but also butchering sets) and these three knives seem like the most useful knives for me, but I am happy to take into account your suggestion.

    Marko

    I think it is a great idea. I have been toying with the idea of getting some 2 or 3 knife sets made with my next purchases

    I thin the point here is to match the wood on all pieces of the set, but to make a set of the most useful knives.

    I like gyuto-suji-parer combination, but am opened for other ideas, like gyuto-suji-petty, or gyuto-suji-nakiri. Tall knives I will offer with S grind, narrow knives with convex.

    I can do many set, just maybe 3-4.

    Going to think about it a little bit, but will start planning shortly.

    Thanks,

    Marko

    Gyuto-suji-parer is a great set gives you a little bit of everything. What type of steel are you thinking? My vote is abe-l, I think majority of people who will buy this set will be for a gift for someone like mom gf dad family members etc.
