A laser is clearly too obvious an answer for me. Shigawire? Nothing like a monomolecular filament to wreck my cutting boards. And counters. And digits.

if you could have anything you could imagine simply get made for you. what would it be?

personally i would probably go for a single bevel santoku. quite beefy. 180x60 or so.
edge steel: some hss powder. clad in stainless hardened damascus. since i dont like scatches.
handle would be some really really nice turkish walnut for the "bolster", then maybe some nice carbon as a spacer,
then either the most goddamn awesome piece of masur on the entire planet 👌. or some ultra contrasty betlehem olive.

😂✊💦💦

so what would you guys like?

👏👏👏
Wouldn't that be a deba

Don't forget, Californium is twice as dense as steel, so you could have a 500g gyuto, and double the cash.

Of course, you'll die just being near it. And of course, depending on the isotope, halflife can be really short. Better sell fast.

I looked on Wikipedia to try to understand this knife, and saw a photo of the
Fifty-ton shipping cask built at Oak Ridge National Laboratory which can transport up to 1 gram of Cf
GLWS :)

I fancy a single bevel flat profile, 160-180mm or so, shaped like a large #11 scalpel blade, in a hard material staying sharp as heck for looong. I have no experience with TF but it would probably need his HT (or something similar), blade should be real thin and yet stiff.

I have no clue if it would work, it may end up being used to just cut for the fun of feeling it sink through things and doing microsurgery on greens with the tip.

Wait, you mentioned TF.

It's the In-x-acto Honesuki! :D

while these are good suggestions guys. in this thread you can have ANYTHING and EVERYTHING you want. dont hold back now.
Don't care about the HT, handle, blablabla whatever, just give me 1000kg of gold shaped like a knife.
Masamoto 240 White#2 Honyaki Gyuto. That's it.
Wow congratulations, does that mean you'll be letting go of your Heiji? ;) 😝

250x52mm gyuto, Heldqvist-style profile with a gently curved nearly-flat edge, pointy and triangular. Nice distal taper but not too extreme, medium weight convex grind that's just thin enough to not split potatoes. Solid Heiji semi-stainless monosteel with an integral bolster and a plain oval handle made of stabilized redwood burl, no pins. Price of $200 😛

DT 240 gyuto made from Larrin's newly minted steel ... one can dream you said ... lacking that a Stainless San Mai Gyuto from either Will Catcheside or Benjamon Kamon ...
This would truly be a dream knife.
