    As much as I understand the cult status of the KDs, these days I would much more prefer to support the vendors here, most of which can produce a similar quality as far as I understand. Not that I am in a position to even think about buying knives in that price range... But I am sure there is a market for it.

    I guess that it refers to the same 210mm gyuto that already was in e*ay a couple of days ago, the listing expired without a single bid. Start was 2,000 with PIN-option for 3,000

    Seems ridiculously overpriced even for a KD, the list price in japan (and i am told one can get them in Japan if one waits or is lucky) is about 2300 new -

    You say those cost 2,300 new so i don't see why the starting bid of 2,000 is "overprized". If you end up being the only one who bids you get it cheaper than new, no?

    It's only overpriced if nobody bids on it.

    I guess we'll know soon enough!

    The 210 that was listed with a starting bid of $2000 sold for $2000 a few days ago.

    Man I really want it!
    But I could have so many more awesomer knives for that.

    Unless someone can prove to me that Hattori's KD doesn't chip like every other HRC66 steel I've ever used, I couldn't imaging ponying up that much.
