    I kind of like that giant shig usuba that Maxim has. BTW, this is a kind of wish thread and if you have something that someone here wants, you have to send to them!.... Now! Those are interweb rules.

    $1500 can barely buy 1" of a bob kramer custom. $15,000 is more realistic if you want a high quality kitchen knife.

    Please define "high-quality". Is Kramer going to cut 30x better than a $500 high-quality knife?

    If going by pure performance, one is paying 14.5K for the name, labor and skill it takes produce the steel, and collector's value perhaps, and the rest for quality and performance.

    It is possible I don't understand what high-quality is, as I look at knives through the prism of performance rather than appearance.

    hmmmm....you seem to think that knives are tools that have a specific function in the scope of accomplishing a larger objective.

    Me too....but pretty is OK...and you do pretty quite well.

    I have been pondering this for about a month now. I recently received a small sum of money, and have been wondering if I wanted to get something at about that range. But there is many bills yet to pay so I will be thinking for a while.

    I do think that knives are tools first and foremost, and each of the makers has our own idea of aesthetic appeal - some call it rustic and skip a few steps, and some go to a various length finishing a blade or doing intricate handles that are more for an appearance than for utility (for instance handles that look great but are uncomfortable or too small).

    I thought that qualities like steel, HT, profile, geometry, ergonomics of a handle, fit and finish etc. are given for a quality knife, but maybe not. It tools world, it's simple - the best performing tools get the best reputation.
