    I want a #2, #1 is too short for me. If #2 doesn't happen I'd go with a #4 as a second choice. To me the #2 just seems to be an All-American kind of butcher's knife. Then dress it up with a nice ironwood or cobo handle.

    Ironwood is usually pricey, but you can get cocobolo at some good prices.

    Would octagonal wa handles be weird on these?

    Just to let you all know that I'm doing this as soon as I get started on the gyutos and sujihikis. I'm not sure if I will make a boatload of these types of knives but I will try to make what is requested. Thanks for the input guys, it's extremely valuable.

    I love it!!!

    BTW, I just scored my first Beatty cleaver (a #1) off EBay last week for a very reasonable $30.

    There was really nothing that Dario did with that knife that you couldn't do with a gyuto, or sujihiki, or even a machete.

    I don't know if there are too many people that still break 158 primals, especially at home.

    LOL. I seriously doubt so. We don't even do it in restaurants...
