    few months ago, Harner give me a quote for extra tall, thick spine (Nakiri-cleaver) with wa handle about $900~1000...
    for me, I want "DT 52100 Damascus with Rader's forged-integral handle & Marko's saya" or "Bill Burke blade with Rader's handle & Marko's saya" or "Tsukasa Hinoura Damascus with traditional Japanese Urushi/Makie handle+saya"

    I asked myself that question a few years ago and ended up with an amazing knife from Rader at a price and wait that is probably a thing of the past...

    I've been on the Hoss's and Bill's WL's for going on 2 years now and I doubt $1500 will cover what I have in mind from either of them.

    I know your initial question was for 1 knife, but I don't think that I could think of a better value than splitting between the money between the 3 M's of Martell, Marko, and Mario. You might even have enough leftover to buy some food to cut up.

    Thanks CClin. Might have to send an email tomorrow. His shop is less than 10 mins from me, so it would be convenient

    $1,500, and spend it all on one knife... Well, that is not enough for a DT or BB dammy knife, but should net you great gyuto or suji in monosteel or san mai. For something more artsy (Damascus + carving, etching, etc.), I'd go to Randy Haas, although I'm not sure if $1,500 gets you to a 240/ 270. As others have stated above, plenty of other great makers for far less then $1,500; frankly at that price point you are paying $750+ for bling. For me, I'd split the $1,500 between several of the custom makers and get a few non-dammy knives.
