    Xmas present, most beautiful knife

    Hi

    Another variation on a common question, if funds were not an issue what would be the most attractive knife you would covert ? it should be a production knife and not a one off special please. The following is something that has that appeal to me

    As a next question, what would be the best value/most attractive knife youve ever seen ?

    That is one good looking knife. Some thing like that would be my pick as well.

    Production = Konosuke ZDP or Honyake gyuto/ Monzaburo Honyaki mirrored gyuto

    Best value, period = Carbonext, Hiromoto, Fujiwara, Moritaka
    Most attractive = Salty's herringbone DT cimiter. Adam's DT bubble wrap gyuto
    Best value + attractive production = Takeda (I like rustic), Z-Kramers, Konosukes with ebony handles, Hattori FH forum,
    The difference between try and triumph is a little "umph"! NO EXCUSES!!!!!!!

    Zwilling-Kramer with a custom handle from Dave would be awesome

    Kitaeji anything Shigefusa. Does that count as production?

    The ZK might be tricky to rehandle because of it's brass bolster and pins. Either leave the bolster and try to get matching pins, or scrap it all together and start from scratch. I guess we won't know until someone tries it.

    I'm drawing a blank. Seriously. Is that a sign of illness?

    For best value attractive knives, I think the JCK Inazuma knives are great value for their rather flash appearance and they are pretty good steel. I love the way the Hattori FH looks also, it has a restrained appeal about it
