    I was just wondering what a custom knife is - is the DT mid-tech one? Or a standard Takeda? Or is it more about buying from small makers, or the ones who are active here? In any case, I decided that I pretty much had what I wanted in knives - and ran out of money - before this forum started and all these great craftsmen came together here. I probably could have bought a few board feet of wood less and could have gotten a few knives instead, and I am definitely curious about many of them, but I seem to have lost that last bit of drive that used to push me into unreasonable actions

    That said, what might count:

    7 Carters (down from 10)
    1 Takeda with Fish handle
    2 Harners
    1 Moritaka (made to my specs)

    Looks like I should diversify more in the future. But I do have a few Keller handles and otherwise customized knives, like a Hiro AS with a Fish handle or a Blazen and a Guede bread knife with koa handles. Handles were made by Adam, Butch, and O'Malley.

    Does it count if you custom make them for yourself

    Fish'n poi is a popular Hawaiian song. There are actually 2 songs with that title, here is the one we hear in the radio every day. I have adopted it as my personal hymn

    Here is the other one that is also great. Especially since my wood shop is in Iwalei in an old pineapple cannery

    When they step up to the plate I'll buy more.

    Too much sizzle.

    Oivind,
    You are very generous with your praise and your unyielding support, but sometimes too much excitement can be unproductive and create unnecessary pressure and unrealistic expectations.

    Please hold your praise (or criticism) of my knives at least until after the passarounds or after I deliver your knives.

    Didn't you get a fancy knife as your wedding gift?
