I'm doing my best here, really.
If you'd like a custom fabricated to your specs, contact Mark @ email@example.com
. MAYBE he can get a custom order from the Fujiyama blacksmith. I am just a forum member; I do not work for CKTG, but I do know that I have a custom on order right now & the cost spread from HD2:G3 was 50%... not 10% as you are assuming. AND
that wasn't even utilizing the Fuji-smith. The http://www.chefknivestogo.com/kowasi24ho.html
would, by simple logic, be less expensive. Is the slightly thicker blade & nuances of the Fujiyama blacksmith really worth the additional time & expense to you, when the knife you want is currently sitting on Mark's shelf.?! Understand, if it can be custom made for you, it will take no less than 6 weeks from the day you pay for it up front.
