Mannlicher:
I had these made for my kitchen.  4 1/2 and 3 inch blades of S35VN steel.  Handles are made of  black, linen Micarta, and have an oval, tapered shape.    I designed them based on a traditional Japanese shape.

boomer:
Interesting blades. Not familiar with that type if geometry but looks like slicers for sure. Handles look great. Looking forward to an evaluation with use. Thanks

Mannlicher:
the design makes for a very strong tip that won't bend or flex when cutting.  The design is ancient and has been a feature on Japanese boning knives for ages.  Most work with a paring knife is done with the tip, and these are very sharp, don't flex, and cut what and where you want them to.

OutdoorEnvy:
Very nice!  I like em!

wsdstan:
Look somewhat related to a few Tanto blades I have.   Just upside down.  I bet they work well.
