    A bread knife is in the future, but I need to order some custom tooling which is too long of lead time for the holidays.

    Good idea!

    It's a good concept I understand why you and Evan are requesting it, but I'm going to stick with ready to ship store knives and custom orders for now.

    I think your system is working out pretty well ! Lol. I'd stick to the most common shapes and sizes for store ready. But I'm sure whatever you made would sell in short order.

    Holiday Treat #1
    Damascus san mai gyuto with a 52100 core and a total of 750 layers for the jacket resulting in a very fine pattern. The handle is carbon fiber, nickel silver, and exhibition grade two-tone curly koa.

    Best koa ever? Maybe I should toss that on the kiritsuke, the way koa moves it could embody the light in the darkness.

    What makes you decide between doing a san mai damascus and a blade with damascus throughout ("monosteel", but not mono obviously)?

    Holy crap that's beautiful... can't wait to see what other treats hit your store!

    The whole package is gorgeous to me but funny thing is my eye is drawn to how nice the plunge line is. LOL

    Next week's treat will (probably) be a 52100 Western integral with a carbon fiber handle. I'm excited!
