It has been 5 years since I started dabbling in a knife-making. It has been a long and uneven ride, with many ups and downs, as I tried many geometries and profiles, steels, handle design, accessories design, etc. Some things were hits, some were misses, but in retrospect, I can say all of them were fun!))
I started making knives in Masamoto derived profile with a convex geometry. Those early ones were well received, and I haven't seen any of them popping for sale in a second hand market. One of my early knives was reviewed by Darkhoek and I think the review is still around on his blog.
I decided to go back to the original geometry and profile. I ground one gyuto yesterday, brought it home and made a dinner using it, and I think it's pretty close in performance and feel to ones I made 5 years ago))). I will grind a slightly thinner version of the same knife, compare the two and make a video of the performance on a variety of produce.
This geometry and profile will be a base for my ready-made Pro-Line knives. The knives in this line will be priced competitively, and will offer an excellent "bang for the buck" value in terms of performance, longevity, fun using them, etc.
The X-mas sets will be in the same geometry.
