    thats not bad, the thin tip would let you clean silver skin and other small work.

    That knife looks like it has been sharpened down a bit but I have been using the exact same model Dexter for maybe 25-30 years for beef, deer and elk butchering. It has worked find for me. Given large animal processing is something I only do a very few times a year, there hasn't been much reason to look for anything fancier.

    We have already spoke about this Dave, but I thought I would throw my thoughts out -
    Is the goal here to create a set of knives to really disassemble a carcass? Or are we creating a homage to this style of cutlery that has a practical use for the average (whatever that is) member?

    If the latter, I really want a gently curving scimitar at no more than 8 inches of cutting length, mostly for trimming my briskets and clods, breaking down pork shoulders ect.. I will not be working from a rail on a hanging carcasses with this knife.

    If it's the former, then thats all good also, I would just prefer a knife I actually have a use for.

    So in all seriousness, this is something that will materialize, right? And if this is serious...what is an approximate time frame? 1 year? I know it has only been talked about for a little over a month, and Dave's plate is already heaping, but I think this is a really neat idea. Not that I don't like new gyuto's, but I already have too many of them. Just trying to get an idea of when to start saving the green.
