Would it be impossible to get some leaf shaped blades some drop point blades? Just thinking the only difference is a CNC program? Will still probably get a leaf but would die for a drop.
I think the answer to this is ultimately going to be no, for 2 reasons.
Firstly, we ran a poll on this a few weeks ago, and the majority voting was for a leaf shape, and it wasnt really neck and neck. I think a lot of people felt that to really show off the damasteel pattern, the leaf shap was best.
Secondly, from the feel of this so far, anything that incurs redesign will need testing, both of which cost time and money. The damasteel in this knife is going to be hoovering up most of the budget, so more frugal choices have been made elsewhere. Sal has made it clear that bloating the budget kills the project.
I don't want anyone to be excluded here, and I am sorry that this is probably not the answer that will satisfy you.
I wonder how hard it would be to buy the product and just regrind it yourself? Could you just clamp a slow water hose to spray over a cheap grinding wheel to keep it from getting hot, marker the desired profile and just go low and slow toll you get there, then file and polish. Or is this nonsense? Its probably what I would look to do.
But if this is total nonsense then someone please correct me.
