    I haven't lived the life I wanted, just the lives I needed too at the time.

    Love the last pic. The other aren't bad either, but the last one rocks!

    You know I have been looking for something different if I was going to get one, it would be the top one or third down of the pics on page 2. I need the heel height, I am really digging on the Forschner. I just don't like Bernal knife.

    The shape's not quite dead yet. Sanelli has a whole line of these http://www.sanelli.com/cms/ENG/categ.../8-knives.html

    With the various butcher knife projects that have popped up here recently, no one has mentioned these...bullnose & scimitar are pretty much the default choices. Guess the old 'one size fits all' butcher knife like these diverged into those more familiar patterns.

    Lots of older chefs and butchers I know have these.Mostly used for cutting steaks from whole primals.Very stiff so nice straight cuts.

    This style of butcher knife is the most common in Argentina, iirc.

    Maybe I look at the knives differently than most, but to me a gyuto in this profile isn't that different from any gyuto that is used by most here - drop the tip and move it back a little bit, drop the heel, and you get a typical gyuto with a pointy tip. Some gyutos are on the flat side, some have more belly, but ultimately, all have a roughly triangular profile.

    I also use the second "sweet" spot right behind the tip area (the tip area being the first, and heel - third) for most my cutting, so I can see how this knife could be pretty versatile with the added meat cutting function. Not trying to convince anybody here, just thinking aloud.

    I am more interested in a slicer than a gyuto, actually.

    I use this Itou at home as much as I do a gyuto. Similar profile to the other knives in this thread. Really useful shape for general kitchen tasks. I like this profile 210 and under. Longer than that and I would prefer a scimitar.

    I have seen very similar but probably 160-210 - they were popular in the eastern parts of Eastern Europe during communist times. A lot of homes had one of these as a general knife.

    Cannot comment of the usage but asking someone with a family ending in -ov or -ich may give you more info. Sturdy things. I have abused mine quite a lot.
