    450 isn't bad, but I'd prefer closer to 400. :-)

    One thing you might consider doing (not necessarily for the weight saving) is shortening the handle. It doesn't need to be that long. Short and fat handles are good on a cleaver.

    Looking forward to hearing more about this knife!

    Thanks,

    Mark

    The handle will also be shortened 3/4". That, skeletonized handle, narrower bolster, and maybe some material removal from the tang side of the blade... If I can hit 420, 430 I will be pleased.

    To my understanding, a mid-tech knife is just like a custom knife except that the shape is cut out on a water jet cutting machine. This makes a blank similar to the blanks Jantz or any other knife supply shop sells. Pierre would then grind the profile, heat treat, polish etc etc.

    The only thing he wouldn't be doing is cutting the shape of the knife out of a blank piece of steel.

    Please correct me if I am wrong.

    Got the free shipping email for orders over $100.
    It just says limited time, no time frame.

    Pierre, can you give some specs on that boning knife?

    At this price point, as mentioned else where, Laser cut, cnc parts, assembled and hand finished. These are my design, to my spec, but are higher tech involvement than what I'm branding as my pro series. These knives are using the same steel (CPM 154) and HT as my customs, but remember, more work I do on them, then more we have to charge.

    These are not intended to compete with my pro series, or be custom friendly. What you see is what you get. These are intended to be high quality knives, at a price that is attainable by many more people.

    You are going to have to show some people what you get with a full on Pierre cleaver, probably some wicked edge taking beautiful patinaing carbon with some some crazy unobtanium spalted burl and since you live in the land of mammoths, some killer mammoth tooth spacers....
