Steve Goodson in Texas custom makes knife rolls, maybe you could ask him
I always wonder why people are so hooked on the traditional Japanese design, while you can draw a gazillion lines through 3 points and produce a gorgeous design. This was also thinking outside the box. Maybe some of you will like them, while another part of you will dislike them.. These have been posted on FF a long time ago. Yuuga is again just a working title. Want to have one made? Just ask, I'll send a 1/1 outline drawing to work with, same for the others already posted.
Let's start with an outline drawing of the gyotos;
And, the sujis;
And a pimped version of gyotos and a suji below;
i still think the butcher's duo is the most interesting forum knife idea, but if you wanted to eventually expand the line to gyutos and sujis, to make them unique, offer them in "half sizes". i know shige and nenox have some of them, but a lot of people cannot afford either of those, but would benefit from 225/255/285mm gyutos and sujis.
I'm getting really excited about running with the butcher knife set idea, this is getting my creative juices flowing.
Why don't we focus on this and start discussing what we want from these knives?
Great! Maybe we should start a new thread so people who have given up on this one or dont want to read through 12 pages can get right to it and contribute to the butchers set idea.Originally Posted by Dave Martell
Hmm maybe something like a honesuke and a petty/boning knife combined. Or like a kiritsuke tip boning knife?

I realize Dave wants to focus on the butchers knives, but since i rarely have a need for these...
How about a very laser thin gyuto in Masamoto KS shape, AEB-L or another good stainless? Wa of course.
