Thanks!

The first two are really cool looking. Do you use a distal taper in the blade geometry? One of my favorites here is a thin bladed santoku with no taper at all, but I have another fairly old 12 inch chef knife with at least 1/4 inch spine at the bolster. When you hear the first Bowie knife was just a "butcher knife" that one would make you a believer; it feels more like a short sword in hand.

Neat stuff Chad. More?

YES!  :hail:   Very nice......a good kitchen knife is a joy to use and a poor one is a giant PITA!   Those all look like they have a lot of potential. :thumbsup:

I'm a sucker for a good kitchen blade too. Those look great. A good slicer is a pleasure to use and yours look like they could slice good.

Some fine looking knives!  I'm especially drawn to the first two.  What are the specs on them?

Thickness? I think it would be hard to find a knife with that much rocker, well, I guess there might be a HB camp knife (which the 2 remind me of) Anyway, I've never tried one like that- looks are sweet.

Those all look great but I think maybe either of the first two just because they're a little different.  Great looking knives!  :thumbsup:
