Thanks for posting Melampus! I was intending to only post kitchen type styles here but truth is I have been testing out most of these knives in my kitchen even though they are better suited to fishing and hunting. The top one was my first design for a "steak" knife. Ive since redesigned what I think would make a good "steak" knife. Also these pics were taken of unfinished knives as you can see:) No worries, Its always hard to decide when a knife is truly done. You get it hardened, shaped, sharp, polished, regrind it, reshape it, get it sharper and on and on. I did in fact finish my light box today and got a few petty knife profiles ready for photos. Ill get em up tonight or tomorrow morning and let the kitchen cutlery pursuit of perfection begin:)

Heres one that is turning out pretty good ...Hand sanding the blade still to go. Its an rc 60 o-1 steel blade about .007 behind the edge with a bit thicker towards the tip. The handle is fossil walrus cheek. Very solid and dense stuff. Feels awesome in the hand. I might scrim some subtle embellishments into the handle.
