Yeah, pricey, but factory knives can cost as much.....but I'm betting that fixed blade price is for a small regular blade. Larger Vegas, especially the Saussure will cost much more. But these are handmade with a quality that surpasses factory blades. And they should only appreciate in value and not depreciate. AND.....they're beautiful!!!!

He had one fantasy piece priced at 11,900.00!!!

Maybe DW won't notice where a large chunk of next year's income tax refund went!!!!

Looks like it would be a hop to clean. Spyderco's in S30V is pricey enough for me.

There is another guy that makes some INSANE knives. I will see if I can find a link and a name, but just stunning knives and uses a damscus type steel(well, the look anyways) but the layered stained handles are art in of them selves.

Thanks for sharing, keltin!

Those are beautiful! I also love the knife blocks he has. I have to wonder though, how much of a pain it could potentially be to clean the blades with the holes in them. It your are cutting something messy that gets in all those little holes you might be sitting there with a q-tip or toothbrush or something trying to get the gunk out. I don't think that would stop me from getting one though if I had the $ to spend.
