    I could use a boner for the lamb but a scimitar makes short work of it when you have a bunch to do. Notice I use my cheapest one?

    We used to sharpen ours on the back of an electric can opener, when I was in the game. So, what, 800 grit, max? That was a tip from a butcher of over 50 years. Old-school and primitive, but it worked surprisingly well.

    These look really nice, Marko.

    The scimitar is going out to a pro user for testing and feedback. Once I get feedback, I will make one for a lottery.

    I can't believe I missed this whole thread. Strong work and great input. I want to see this knife.

    I love that photo. Lamb is by FAR my most favorite meat. That type of porn just makes we want to seek a dark room for privacy.

    The scimitar I am sending out for testing has a couple of tweaks that make sense to me, looking forward to the feedback. The handle is a man-handle, as suggested and coca-cola shape. Also look forward to the feedback.

    OK, the scimitar is on its way to the tester, who also happened to have a birthday today.

    Look forward to the feedback and suggestions for improvement. It's an exciting knife to make and I look forward to work on a version 2.0, as well as a 8" scimitar-shaped breaking knife. .

    If you get the 8" breaking knife going I would be interested in wringing it out. The best shapes for it would be forschner or wenger. Great profiles but steel could be a whole lot better. I'll try to post some pics.
