I'm looking for a custom, or well built cutting knife in India. Hopefully Delhi or Rajasthan. Any ideas?
No problem

The best, i.e. workable, cutting knife I have was picked up from a TJ Maxx in New Jersey

If you need one for display purposes, you will find one in Rajasthali (Jaipur) or at shops near the lake in Pushkar.

what do you want to cut with it?

(Or is it a specific technical term that I'm not familiar with?)

Japan is so good for this. Their cutting blades are unbelievable craftsmanship and beautiful indeed just to admire the blade. Randall fighting knives were famous in the US for years.

You had to wait for years, double sided (custom) and balanced beautifully, and so sharp you had to periodically return them for a rehab just from the wear of removing them the sheath. If you got impatient... He is dead now and I don't know if the son was able to keep up that demanding eccentric craftsmanship. But of course, you get what you pay for. I have an Indian cavalry sword courtesy of one of the organizers of a communal riot in Ahmednagar. However, its only good for whacking the members of the opposite religion..

Looking to buy custom cutting knife

All I have seen in "custom" Indian knives is home-ground saw blades with tape handles.

I am not a buyer/connoisseur of (very) expensive kitchen knives, but I don't buy cheap either (eccentric attachment to carbon steel which is hard to maintain and needs frequent sharpening)... I have not yet even seen what I would call a good knife here.
