    Hammering them out is the only way I think they could (maybe) be done cost effectively.

    A Butchers set sounds outstanding. If you are going to include a leather case you should speak with Christian at Xian Leather: http://www.xianleather.com/ He can do anything in leather and his work is the best I've ever seen. He may be cost prohibitive but it's worth a shot. Below is a motorcycle seat he made for me:

    OK, I'm back at this again after seeing in another thread (in The Kitchen Knife forum) the mention of what a couple of people are interested in getting for a butcher's knife.

    Of the two knives shown here which are you most interested in for the larger knife?

    Maybe add a little more choil for safety sake?

    Here is a picture of a garasuki with kiritsuke tip, I think I remember someone mentioning a preference for this knife as the Forum boner-ha ha. I really like the tip because the blade isn't too narrow and that makes it possibly functional as a petty.

    What do you all think of it, but maybe with a western handle instead?

    My apologies, Dave, I know the image is from the competition but it's only to throw ideas around.
