    Favourite knife.

    Sorry if this has been done to death already, but if it's not too boring: what is the best knife you ever bought and why? What about your dream knife? (with pictures). and the one that got away, or even the one you wish had got away.....

    Well, my favourite knife, is a 150mm petty in VG10 from Endeavour Denmark. Nothing special with it until now, but it was my 1st higher quality knife so I am emotionally attached to it

    It is a bit thick but I am in the process of thining it and also I am trying to etch it to reveal the damascus. It takes a good edge (30d total) and it maintain it for a long time.

    For me, it's like trying to pick my favorite child.
    That said, the ones I use most are Shun Fuji 6" (more like 7") gyuto, Kai Tan Ren paring knife, Hiromoto AS 270mm gyuto. In about that order.

    Congratulations, Clayton, that was fast...
    I must admit I flattened the first few inches from the heel, but you got it.

    the weld line at the handle was what made me think it could be one.
