    Meat Fabricating Knives - New Line

    Hi folks,
    I am going to finally realize an idea that I have sat on for years - making butchering knives. It will be a while before I get to a whole line, but for now, this is a second type of this series that I produced.
    I have already put some work in making a scimitar and I think I am ready to start a production version of this knife.

    This is a small boning knife that will be used to fabricate lamb. It is ground as kitchen knife, not a hunting knife)), pretty stiff, but thin at the edge. It's a prototype, and I would need more feedback before it will become a production knife. Oversize handle. Comes with a leather sheath.

    Marko - the knife looks great, but I am wondering how would its use compare to a honesuki. You mention thin behind the edge AND stiff blade - how it will fare when it occasionally meets a bone? How would it differ from a petty of similar size? I am positively curios

    I would need to find out more about performance, but to thicken the edge is always easier than to thin - a couple of passes on a flattening diamond plate. The knife is to be uses for fabricating a lamb. I will ask the tester to compare it to honesuki and to report the results.

    Hi Marko

    1st - Any general dimensions on the small boning knife would be helpful ... lovely by the way!

    2nd - Would you consider selling and mounting (if that is even possible) just the blade to a supplied Wa handle (FWIW - Mickey built me a handle (Wa) for a Hankotsu that has never materialized (waited 2+ years for now ...). Just curious either way (no offense 2 u and I love your handles - just trying to find a knife for the handle I own!).

    PM me when you get the chance!

    Thx Tom
