    Let's see what had you all so excited.
    Actually, I was shill bidding for the owner. Never would have done that if I knew son was bidding on it. Oops, actually it just appeared that way I was trying to win. Darn! I hate losing.

    Great idea, but I love these old bakelite knives with the round tips, I would probably leave them as they are. If I had the funds, I would go for a varied set of steak knives instead, but I will still sit back and watch this project, I'd love to see how that goes.

    actually, i have no idea what Karring bought, I was going to bid on a few russell table/ dinner knives and send them to him as samples, but somebody bought them before I could pull the trigger.
    I haven't lived the life I wanted, just the lives I needed too at the time.

    Good to hear. I have stayed away from eBay other than bidding on Vintage berkel slicers.

    You could consider doing it in damascus and no wooden handle. Like this:


    Here is another option:


    Me on the other hand would have gone for fewer but bigger butter knives.
    Ive fallen in love with this one:


    That kind of shape. You wanna have a knife with that big surface I would go western handle. My 2 cent

    Hi everyone

    Jürgen Schnanz offeres semi-custom classic german breakfast-knives (Buckels) made from Niolox/SB1 : http://www.messerforum.net/showthread.php?t=88997
    Herdes has them in carbon/cherry: http://www.messer-mit-tradition.de/w...sklinge&rub=20

    I have the Herders, they are quite thin (very interesting company btw) and offer quite some value

    Just as a thought

    Oivind, that first one would be a very cool shape for condiment servers. I was considering these Pendray knives a while back, and I loved the look of having the entire knife out of damascus.

    Thanks, for the German links. Those knives are right up my alley too, and I like the handles without bolsters. Btw, Mr Drinky registered at MesserForum to see the photos but after doing so I did not have the right permissions to look at the photos. Their forum rules outran my German language skills

    Hi
    Yeah. It takes a few days for the registration to be active, the admins are very busy there..
    Jürgen makes good, thin knives for a great price. I have some of his semi-custom work....:
