My grandfather made knives, daggers, and swords as a hobby, so I have his handmade knives. They are wonderful!

Seeeeeeeya; Goodweed of the North

Do they have those at Epicurean Edge yet? I'd like to order one if they come with a free saya.

Bismark Metalcraft in Tasmania (Australia) produce some very good knives. I was emailing Ken Bradford about getting a 10" chef's knife before some personal issues prevented me spending money on luxuries for a few months and he was quoting a starting price of ~$400 AUD for a knife of that size.

For me I covet the Goldhamster range from Eberhard Schaaf, and I'd crawl over broken glass to get one of their Chef's knives, even though I am a Sabatier man through and through when it comes to Chef's knives.
Goodell Co made some pretty nice stuff. My pet clam knife was made by them. I share your fondness for Schaaf's Goldhamster.

New one to drool over- a 240mm Tanaka gyuto in R2. That may be even prettier than a Hattori KD.
If we're not supposed to eat animals, then how come they're made out of meat?

I don't want to stray off topic and know that most of you are Japanese knife fans, but I'm in process of a final move overseas to Costa Rica, and have two mint-condition Randall knives I'm not planning to take with me. If anyone's interested, send me a private message. I'll make you a great deal on them if you can buy both (maybe a third).
