Hey Devin, what ever happened to the ITK run of 225mm line knives?
Yeah I agree that the suji/gyoto combo would be best for what we're going for here. I think one of us just needs to come up with a rough drawing.Yeah, kinda a gyuto/suji hybrid, maybe 43-43mm tall at the heel. I like the standard Devin profile, but perhaps a slightly higher tip with a little bit more curve would be useful.
Now you've got me wanting pics!!!I visited DT this past weekend and watched as he put together a 210mm sujihiki in a spicy white steel/stainless san mai. I left it with him to tweak the handle some. I was able to use it to do some prep for a Mexican BBQ shared with his family and let me tell you: this is an amazing knife. It is a great line knife. I have used other 210mm pettys but felt they were too laser-ish. This knife was light, but substantial at the same time.
For any of you on the fence about contacting Hoss about a custom, don't. He makes amazing knives and knows what an amazing knife is.
Sorry no pics...What happens in Panaca, stays in Panaca.
