    Whatever is within your budget and catches your eye.

    If you go carbon, put a coat of camellia oil on it to protect from rust. That includes the exposed core of clad carbon blades. Stainless won't need the oil. They look the same on a shelf.

    Whatever is within your budget and catches your eye. There are plenty more options than just wood and bone. Micarta, mammoth ivory, water buffalo horn, stag horn, nickel silver or copper spacers, mosaic pins... A custom handle can be swapped in later.

    Actually it's Batma...errr...Rusty who makes the serrated-tip chef knives.

    just skip to 3:05

    But if what you're after is a incredible amount of skill and material used create a product that's most functional as a focus for visual awe and bewilderment, then you may have to leave the kitchen a bit or broaden your definition of "seafood knife" as I don't know if you can do any better than the Whale v Squid-Knife featured at 7:30 in the vid.
