Sounds like your goal is to market to different folks than the rest of us.
Or create a new market.
Most of us are not going to be able to help much on that end.
However there are a lot of accomplished makers here, who's only goal is to create a high quality knife.
There's plenty of help here on that end.
Real help, and realistic.
Realistic advice on what it actually takes to make quality cutlery.
I do suggest you head to a couple of knife shows though if you think the buyers are yacht owners...
There are those, and I am blessed to have a few as customers, but the bulk are just white collar, middle class folks, with an appreciation for functional art.
They don't have thousands upon thousands of dollars of extra cash.
That's why there is a secondary market.
The truly wealthy don't often sell their toys, or tools.
I am a full time maker.
There is nothing I make that anyone needs, nor have you proposed anything new that anyone needs.
Sure, everyone needs a knife, but there are millions of them out there that can be bought for a whole lot less than what we have to charge to feed the family.
I can buy a bucket of folding knives for $30.
