    Just to let you guys know if you haven't seen them yet...

    Hey everybody, in case you haven't seen Lee (aka Louisianacook - who I haven't seen post in quite a while) is selling two amazing knives over in the ITK forum. One is one of the 20 special edition Doi yanagis that Darkhoek raves about that Korin did a special run on a while back, and the other is a a 240 custom Carter gyuto with a Fish handle and saya. YES A FISH HANDLE AND SAYA!!! Obviously this is something that will come on the market only once a decade or so, so if someone out there wants something really special, you should go check them out.

    I already have a Carter with Fish handle....and you will have to pry it out of my cold dead hand before I relinquish it.

    Ha! Exactly why you won't see something like that come on the market very often!

    I think it is the sentimental value of the fish handle and saya. Unless there is a difference between carters Japan vs US knives.

    A HG in 285mm is $610.06, so how much is the Fish handle and saya worth?
