No. But I have noticed that the price of Forgecrafts has gone up considerably lately over on the 'Bay. And I'm pretty sure it's all Son's fault...
There is only one God, and his name is Death. And there is only one thing we say to Death: 'Not Today...'
damnit Dave, that listing just sent me on a 30min ebay butcher knife spree.
That looks to me like they got a stone cold bargain, and I know precious little about knives. Any idea what it is [further than a 165mm carbon deba] and what it is really worth, Dave?
I saw it and I do blame myself for the forgecrafts, I can't even afford to buy them myself anymore. I saw one the other day go for $85 on the bay.
I haven't lived the life I wanted, just the lives I needed too at the time.
Especially the mint chefs knives...seems like slicers and butchers can still be had reasonably.
Glad I'm not the only one typing in words like * carbon, *vintage, *chef knife, *cleaver, etc....lol
The difference between try and triumph is a little "umph"! NO EXCUSES!!!!!!!
I was thinking about it, but I don't need another project.
I still tease myself every couple of weeks but I have cut back on that since running up 4 sab slicers / parings in one week. It is getting hard to justify the increase in the knife block to the wife and I have a Marko and Mario in the works. My goal is to start checking out the yard sales once it gets warm.
I hear ya - I get the stink eye every time a box gets delivered lately.
I need to make some disappear soon I'm running out of ways to justify having three 10" Forgecrafts and a couple of 12s. And I have a Yoshihiro 270 gyuto on the way.
