    Harner, extra tall, 270mm, preferable clipped tip. Not sure if the 1500 would cover it though. Or talk him into doing me a cleaver. Hmm... Now you got me thinking. Next time I see him I might have to talk to him, and bribe him with some f my beer.

    I could be wrong on the numbers but as far as I know $1500 would maybe cover 3 from Devin. 270 gyuto, 210 petty, 85mm paring all in monosteel. Mystery carbon on the gyuto and on the suji/petty and aeb-l on the paring knife.

    You could get a couple Harners for that quid.

    Personally, I don't know what I'd do. 6 names come to mind, though.

    I am too cheap to spend that kind of cash on only one knife. And I probably wouldn't notice the difference between a $400 and a $1500 knife anyway. So, I'd get a decent 300mm yanagi, always liked the Watanabes but might let Jon talk me into alternatives. For the rest, i would hope to get 2 gyutos from some of the makers here on the forum, although I really would have problems to choose which makers I would give priority, they all look good in their own way.

    Hmm. Not much left that I want to get. Probably use that money to buy a few nice natural whetstones.

    Yup. But if he' be willing, maybe a tad taller.
