Tramontina has a ad campaign with these.
I a Italy considered getting my wife one of the pink Kuhn-Rikon parers, but thought it's be too hard to sharpen because if the grind and "bolster". I honestly think they are ok, but not quite right.
Check out colori safari. One word 'swanky'
I actually bought that dog knife for my son. He loves it! And that yanagi earlier with the holes in it. Oh ya. I have that! My Mom bought it for me from a thrift store a few years ago. Knows I like knives so bought me a "Japanese Knife." So I pull it out and use it when she's over even though I'm left handed and it's shall we say tricky. Those holes are awful and get gummed up with everything. Actually it sharpens up pretty nice and taught me how to sharpen single bevel knives.
How bout these! Designed by the Grandson of the founder or Porsche. Made of a wonderful steel called Chroma 301 stainless. Basically a construction grade steel. Would love to own something like this that won't keep an edge at all. And those handles.....
I've been completely dumbfounded by those damn Porsche knives for years now...
With the exception of the ergo chef example I didn't find those bad at all. The crystalized one was impractical for sure but I enjoyed the look of it.
