    Eventually, I will offer both a scimitar and a bread knife in a smaller size as well.

    Very interested in the scimitar, and honesuki. Will there be prototype passarounds with these by chance?
    Today is as good a day to die as any. Except for tomorrow. I have plans tomorrow.

    The profile in the picture is a hybrid between Dexter scimitar and another one (had no name, but definitely US made). I am going to do some research on the optimal thickness and grind, so I hope that the final product will live up to the expectations.

    Scimitar a harder knife to make and I don't have time to make a passaround knife with all the work that I am already behind. In fact, I am not sure I will be doing passarounds past the 260mm gyuto.

    Exciting stuff. Will the bread knife be serrated?

    Yes, there will be serrations on the bread knife. Serrations will be matched to a ceramic rod diameter, so the knife can be resharpened. The knife will be for either left or right handle use (side on which serrations are cut).

    The bread knife sounds interesting. Can't wait to see the finished prototype. As a baker, have a soft spot for good working bread knives.

    Will work on the new profile honesukis in the next day or two. Still doing some research on a bread knife and need to put in time to practice shaping Western handles, but it's all in the pipeline.

    Bread and scimitar are harder to make, so I will have to price them differently and there is unlikely that I will pass-around them.
