    unless you find your 'perfect match' in every way imaginable, shouldn't any knife be expendable? i'm still in search of my holy grail. sure i've found a few that i think is great most of the way, but that last 1 or 2 attributes counts for A LOT at this end of the spectrum. i imagine a highly specific full on custom is the only way to achieve such a thing. my most recent is a semi-custom takeda, i'm thinking i may need a second custom from another maker to handle heavier tasks.

    any gifted knives should not be involved in the discussion as that goes without saying not to let go of unless regifting elsewhere.

    Never say never. But I hope never have to sell irreplaceable knives, that form a species, like vintages, or knives I have been given, have a history, knives I did a lot of work on, that have become a part of my knife life.

    I now realize I would find acceptable to find another good or even better home to some knives, but not selling them.

    Sell?? No!

    I won't sell any of my knives unless someday I become really desperate, but even then I would never sell my Bob Kramer 9" chef's in 52100.
    It is better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to open your mouth and remove all doubt.
