They are also more flexible than most boning knives. It is kind of a mix between a fillet knife and a boning knife with a drop point. Since I have to wait a whole year to try them out, I was hoping that you guys could give me some thoughts and feedback.

Well here is the bottom one finished. The blade is stiffer than I expected, but it is light and feels great in the hand. I don't know if this is my final design or not, but so far I am really liking it.
