    So that concave grove behind the bevel is almost like a fuller on a sword. Is that for looks, or is it structural?

    Thanks Guys, I had no idea drawings would create such excitement. I had better be able to pull them off now!
    I think you have to think of work like this as investment pieces although of course they are designed as the best of everything I can do including edge steel, geometry and cutting performance.
    Regarding the hollows above the bevels. Check out my first project like this the composite cleaver. It is a feature of the geometry in reducing friction behind the bevel. It is more subtle than sword fullers, think large radius hollow on the back of single bevel. It does not take much to create the right effect but its there. These geometries will be different to the last cleaver though as the hollows go allot further in that case with smaller bevels. These will have taller bevels, and very slightly convex, then slightly hollow ground above that to the spine.

    Crazy awesome. I cant wait for the WIP thread for these.
    Investment is right.
    I wish I had taken my own advice and bought everything of yours I could a few years ago when it was priced just a bit over the cost of materials.

    This will be one helluva WIP thread
    would you consider one off pieces as opposed to full sets?

    Yes , as I will be making materials for the set that will work.....I'll drop you an email, Nasr.
    It also looks like I have a backer for at least one 3 knife set like this one maybe a slightly different or expanded line up. So this is going to happen!
