    I read the article on him in Garden and Gun. He charges $275 for an oyster knife. Haven't handled any of his stuff and with prices like that I probably never will. He's pretty close to my town and would love to "buy local" if and when possible, but not at that price point.

    That's what I'm seeing. Some of the others look like knife house blanks too.

    Yeah I mean it's like $875 for a 210mm vg 10 TKS blank? Was this guy previously a tactical/outdoor knife maker? Quotes like "VG-10 core, this knife will hold an edge that is unparallelled." Make me go, huh???

    For the price of that, I'll take two Rodrigues, or a couple Harners, thanks. Or a DT, or....

    The paring knife has a good look to it but again prices vs steel would make it a silly choice I bought my LR harner for less and could easily get a Del Ealy and just keep the extra $50.
