    I am going to replace the 325mm suji with 250mm Western handle gyuto with a koa handle with contrasting accents, as there seems to be little interest for this long a suji. I will put on hold the scimitar and the bread knife for the reasons that preparation (cutting a blank, profiling, heat treating) takes a long time and I can't justify working on it if there is little interest. Long knives require more time, not to mention the S grind geometry being much more time consuming than say any form of convex.

    I will use the list from the last week to do the drawing for the 250mm gyuto. If anybody from the last week wouldn't want to participate, please send me an email.

    Thanks.

    Grrrrr. I was actually worried that if for some chance I won last week's lottery that I would lose out on the scimitar. That's the one I was really excited about, but now understanding the scope of labor and the necessary pricing behind it, maybe it's still out of reach for Me..

    I have said this before, S grind takes about 30% more time than a convex grind, plus it requires a hand finish. The lengh of a knife, even as narrow as a suji, also makes a project more laborious. Western handle with contrasting accents (joinery), spreads the work on the handle over 2 days. When I add everything, for the price I charge for these knives, I don't use my time as productively as I could.

    Here is the list for 1/31/2014 drawing

    PS: I am considering offering stock knives in convex geometry and making S geometry only custom.

    Marko,
    Please confirm that I'm in. For some reason I'm being denied access. I did sign up a few weeks ago.

    Here are a few more pics of the first lottery knife. Still need to do a little extra polish, etch the name and to sharpen, but other than that, the knife is done.
