What non-mainsream knives do you covet?

With money and availability no object what knives would you buy that are non-mainstream knives?

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.

I'm quite satisfied with my 5" Goldhamster. It's my favorite steak knife. Glad I bought it years ago in Germany for about $30. Seems to be now going for about $55 - $60.

I'd like to own an s30V 8" cook's pattern knife. However I'm happy that I've finally managed to get my circa 1965 Wingen Othello 8" cook's knife to sharpen nicely. The Wingen is working quite nicely breaking down our 18lb Christmas turkey.

Well, since all this takes is a desire and an opinion, seems like a good place for my first post on the forum. I'd choose a custom 10" Chef's by Thomas Haslinger.

Barring that a 240mm Damascus Masamoto or Hattori would be just fine.

More Takedas, Watanabes, Moritakas, Carters, and a Phil Wilson AEB-L Chef's.

Phil Wilson fillet knives are mindblowing. Apparently he only makes a few knives per month. Are they super expensive?

I don't know about his fillet knives, but a 9" chef's was about $400 a year ago and the wait for a custom order is a year or so, or at least was. It could be longer now.

Figured. Way too rich for my blood. Even if it wasn't , I'd not have the patience to spend that kinda money....and wait a year.
