    ~22x24, 1 degree indexing, 60 tool, 1000 psi through the spindle coolant, 14000 rpm dual contact, 30 hp NH5000. I've been wanting one to match our NV5000 that we love so much. Stole it at auction. I'm pretty stoked.

    I do believe you can Blame/Thank @Lorien for that.

    Nathan, what will be the difference (besides cost) of the basic knives vs. the signature series? Speaking of cost do you have approximate pricing?

    I'm not sure. I think it's like a trench knife except it's for murdering multiple people standing in rows? *shrug*. I guess we'll see.


    Knowing you guys, you'll be using it for wood processing or something. ...lol...

    Sounds like something every household in America should be equipped with. Regardless, can't wait to see it.

    Murdering multiple people standing in rows is something I might need during Upcoming Friday Sales:D

    Thanks

    The Trench sword, Tanto, and Kukri are intriguing.

    PS and of course the Integral Shiv!:thumbsup::)

    Addendum: I have no need for wood processing, so I like to fantasize about slaying my imaginary enemies. :confused::eek::D

    I will of course buy all of these for no other reason than because you're the one selling them, and your quality product deserves my money.

    But let's get to the important stuff!
    Please tell me this is the 8" chef knife with matching paring knife in AEB-L that the universe has been begging for for the last 3 years*! This is the one thing I'll actually use on a daily basis, and that will bring so much joy into my life.

    The word "possible" is terribly nerve-racking. Is it "possible" as in "may never happen", or "possible" as in "may not happen soon"?

    *By the universe I mean me.

    Oh man, this would get my money so fast. Yes to AEB-L on these. But maybe throw a D3V cleaver into the mix for good measure!

    I agree as well about getting use. I love the HDFK, FK2, Boot Knife, Shivs, Choppers, etc., but I don't have the opportunity to use them often being an urban wage slave. :( An AEB-L Chef/Paring kitchen set would see daily use and joy!

    It is indeed an 8" single bevel American santoku similar in concept to the old 6" potato knife. I ordered a bunch of AEBL for a stainless option for the upcoming Kephart and there's more than I need for that. I've been wanting to revisit the kitchen knife and there's enough for a micro run of 50. We're considering it. We've already decked and sized the stock for it and there is a preliminary design. Of course a run of 50 isn't really enough to justify the setup and based on the last sale it might only be enough inventory to piss people off. So Idunno...
