I understand where you are coming from, but disagree to a degree. Did my share of itinerant cooking back in the day and knew better than to leave my best blades laying around some random kitchen to wander off, so had a set of Dexters that did a fine, if uninspired, job. The handle shapes and general ergonomics changed according to the blade geometry, and if I was working carving station or something my cutting board didn't look like a knife rummage sale.
My favored set of blades these days includes a couple Hattori French knives, a Zhen boner, Dalstrong slicer, while I use whatever folding knife I'm playing with at the time as a paring knife, currently a Maxace Wind. I still do some showing off in kitchens every now and then and I've always wanted a set of knives that work well while having similar design elements.
Moreover, there are some things I don't like on a knife. I hate round/cylindrical handles, feeling very strongly that a good blade should provide an unmistakeable tactile clue as to its fine orientation, which rules out a lot of Japanese style blades making the rounds these days. And I hate bolsters that the bottom edge of the knife runs into as any knife that is used seriously will need sharpening, and a knife that is sharpened enough will develop a gap where the blade meets the bolsters, making mincing garlic or whatever an issue, so that rules out a lot of German blades.
The Apogee, on the other hand, looks like the grip geometry satisfies my tactile clues to blade orientation preference, and doesn't have a big honking bolster on it which frankly hasn't ever made any sense to me. I'm not seeking merely a scaled down version for a boning, paring, or slicing knife, but something with kindred design elements would look good if ever cooking with eyes on you. If you've been in the food biz you know presentation and eye appeal is a big chunk of the battle, and I feel those esthetic standards apply to equipment too. If Massdrop were to develop a set over time I expect it would sell; if the first piece passed muster I'd certainly buy the ensuing ones.
And hey, if this notion of a set actually gets any attention, throw in a matching big honkin' sharpening steel as well as a stout carving fork. Or heck, shoot the moon and toss in some thematically similar garnishing tools like a corer, peeler, zester, etc. and turn this into a long term project.
