I just got back from the USN show in Las Vegas. This is a fast growing "tactical" show but I was impressed at how many custom kitchen knives being offered too. Prices were a little high for me but I know everyone wants to be the next Kramer. Still, I wonder how deep the market is for $1400 kitchen knives? I tend to think most of these makers are still trying to sell their blades based on appearance rather than performance.
