    So, given the chance to pick, what would you want to use? Blade shaped, handles, materials, finishes?

    I see loads of great carbon steel here. I bet folks might enjoy a reliable knife or knives made with AEB-L or Nitro-V.... two of the most reliable stainless steels I know of. Could work into existing patterns you have?

    I was considering doing CPM3V or CPM154 on a batch, that just means a couple more belts and having to send them out to heat great so the cost would be a little higher due to material and such.

    I'm not currently in the market, but I'd like to see one of your blades with some Desert Ironwood.

    Once it comes back from my buddy who's putting the grind on it for me, his setup can handle the longer blades way better than mine.... for now!

    Would love to see more takes on that idea above. As in, your take on traditional ideas and existing patterns. Lots of traditional stuff out there needing a nice modern interpretation! :)
