    Right Knife for My 40th

    So, with some convincing, my wife has agreed to "allow" me to purchase one more knife for my 40th birthday. in fact, she wants to [I]pay[I] for it! Given we are expecting our first (little girl) on May 9th, I don't foresee another opportunity like this coming for another 10 years! So I figure I'd better make this count. It's also suiting that after 25 years in restaurant kitchens that I've accumulated to this point exactly 39 knives, this last one being my 40th.

    What I'm looking for is a gyuto 240-270. something thin-ish. On my current wish list top 4 are Mario, Carter, Marko, DT. Hence the reason I'm posting this here. If any fellow members happen to have something along these lines that was considering selling or trading, I'd like to express my interest.
    I actually was contacted by a fellow member last week about a trade for a Mario 270 Dhandle. I almost shat myself with excitement. But then I was heart broken when he decided to rescind his offer for the opportunity of a re-handle. Not that I blame the kid, I just don't think he fully understood his new purchase at the time. Sometimes the holy grail ah- ha moment takes a minute to set in. I'm jealous.

    I know this is a long shot in the dark with both my hands tied behind my back and nothing but broken arrows,but I'd figure it's worth a shot!

    Rick,

    That is two potential scores for other members in a week. You must have a few new ones coming in soon?

    Marc,

    Congrats on the upcoming 40th and on the new baby girl to be. Seems you and I follow along the same track, my first baby came at 40 also. However, I was not lucky enough to amass 39 knives before that point. I am on the waiting list for both Mario and Marko so enjoy whatever Rick sends your way if that works out.

    Thank you guys. I'm kind of digging this club, the having your first at 40. Many of my friends started 10+ years ago. Some ride me for starting too late, some confide that they wished they would have waited. Technically, I didn't wait/plan it this way. These are just the cards I have to workwith.

    As for the knife, let me just say this first- I'm utterly surprised, blown away, by the offers that were given. This forum and it's members f*****g rock. I feel fortunate to have found this place to share and follow along.

    Rick was very quick and generous with this offer. It's clearly a no-brainer, and thanks again Rick.

    (drum roll...)
