The biggest hangup on stainless steel is I have to send it out for heat treating and I don't have any in the shop right now. By the time I order it, make a blade, send it out, have it sent back etc. it would add about 3 weeks and $75 to the cost.
Carbon steel I have in the shop and can heat treat myself but it requires more care by the user.
There are a lot of kitchen knife blanks available to pick from in various levels of quality, that could have custom handles added as well.
