    The HHH protech was 200 ish. He does a lazer cut aebl full custom for under 400 or a mass produced variant for 200-295. Beautiful blades. Mine has been modified to be xtra sexy.

    Yep I paid $200+ for the aebl semi-production 240mm. Great price for a knife that has served me well as my daily go-to knife. Takes a nice edge and retains is for quite some time with just minor stropping.

    My knives getting the heaviest workouts lately are a 225mm Marko AEB-L gyuto and a Mert Tansu 255mm honyaki gyutohiki in blue steel I think.

    Currently the only knife I've been using is masamoto hc
    . It's a heavy beast and feels so great after using only light knives.

    That's funny, I was just thinking how much I would enjoy using a zakuri 150mm funayuki at work. What funayuki do you use?

    Yamashin. Actually 135mm, Its not the most nicely ground blade, but when its sharp that little thing is no joke.
