I went to the bread knife guy today and asked about a longer one, he told me that he did make some but the longer blades wanted to bend.
How much bigger Rick ?
That bread looks fantastic BTW .

Nice job Rich. That bread looks delicious too.
Thanks mike . The bread was really lite . I cut back on the flour .

Nice work. My mind wants the handle turned 90 deg , but I'm sure there is a reason for this way. I was also going to suggest a left hand version, but I see you got that covered.

Looks good Steve . The cherry ones are thicker so I can flip the blade . The maple ones are thinner . I like both . Yes very sharp .

Edit .
You talking about the top bridge on the bow being thin ? As long as it works I don't see a problem .

Yes, I'm thinking the top bridge is a bit thin. I'll know soon enough. We're having a meal with crusty bread over the weekend. If it breaks, I'll do one a bit thicker.

I've seen one that has a turned handle . Most are like these . The fit and function is really good .
Just have to get tension on the blade .

That also looks real good Steve, nice workmanship. I have no woodworking skills, lol. So I'm in awe of you Guys that can do this stuff.
Thanks Mike! I'm just happy chop turned me on to this knife.

Very late to the game on this one Chop. Beautiful workmanship on that knife. You've got some serious skills my friend.

Point for sure
Chris
