    One of my frustrations is living in an area where I have no shop or equipment access with which to work towards my unicorns.

    I know a bunch of knives that get pretty close to ideal, but nothing quite puts it all together for me. That's a driving force for a lot of makers, I think. Otherwise, I need to get totally imperious with things, and most makers I've met don't appreciate that, or will invest little to no effort into working out the subtleties to make the overall piece work. Too bad.

    I feel like for unicorns a steel knife would probably be a bad idea since fairy folk and the like tend to have bad reactions with iron. You'd probably have to get your hands on some silver and get someone to make you a knife for butchering that unicorn if you want to keep the meat quality high.

    Good points. Maybe get Bill Burke to forge the blade in dragon's breath damascus pattern, too. handle should be made from, well, unicorn horn.
