    Not sure of length and height, but some possibilies would be a usuba, a nakiri, or a kiritsuke-style gyuto.

    Look here for a good library of J-knives: http://zknives.com/knives/kitchen/mi...ll/index.shtml

    ~240 mm kiritsuke-style gyuto would probably maximize the use of the billet. If you weld on non-damascus for tangs (and I don't think that you do) you could make two ~175 mm usubas or nakiris.

    I'm thinking a santoku would be a more mainstream choice and keep most of the steel at the tip.

    Thats a very good link to have.. I spent some time over there reading. Thanks for the link David.

    Santoku would be a good choice.. But I was hoping to try something new and different.. Still thinking....
