    how about a burke

    My oldest son is thinking about making some midtechish knives for the kitchen. 52100 multiple quench western or wa handle 240 and 270 mm gyoto, 130-150 mm petty, 250-270 mm sujihiki and 230 mm santoku. I told him that I would help as needed and that I would put out some feelers here to see what kind of interest there was in this. so what do yall think. prices would be in the 150-450 dollar range.

    excited for his project!

    Ummm, yes, I think there would be a lot of interest in that. If only your son knew someone who knew their way around 52100.....hmmmm.....

    I'm in. Get him on the board to discuss profile etc. The interaction will create interest.

    I would be interested in a western 240 gyuto (lookin like your avatar) preferable stainless clad, but either way is fine.

    A "Baby-Burke" could be interesting. If they are top notch cutters with a bit of outsourcing, I might go for one. If the cutting performance (grind) isn't great, I would certainly pass.

    A wa-gyuto is certainly interesting for me. At the very least, a discussion here could reap benefits for everyone
