You guys are really winding me up with ideas. I feeling the butcher's knife set is something worth pursuing for the forum knife (well knives in this case) but some of the other ideas can be follow ups.
So what do you all feel is required in a western styled butcher knife set?
Here are a few old style butcher knife patterns, some (I believe) not made anymore.
Uh oh. Niloc's gonna be all over this...
Just the two, or it's gonna get out of hand (even though we're used to that).

Belt loop option for Colin?
kinda like this one. please ignore the over priced and poorly shaped knives.
Warren (Unconundrum) talked about making these years ago, wait until he see this picture.
Similar design, isn't it Dave ?
