I was told just now that Murray does in fact give away blue steel knives, and has done so in the last few weeks as a result of his switching to exclusively White #1.
This may not seem important, I know.
But it is.
So that's why I'm bothering telling you so.
When I bought my neck knife from Murray back in 2010, I got a gift from him of a blue steel SFGZ-RH funayuki:
Perhaps Murray determined that neck knife people are not usually kitchen knife people and started giving away small kitchen knives to get them hooked.
Makes me want to buy a kneck knife. I did like what he had when I was looking at his work last year.
