I don't think his prices are out of line,I do find the pics to be very odd.
Note that he doesn't make his own damascus, not that it matters.
Never base a decision on the advice of those who don't have to deal with the consequences.
Damascus in pics looks very much like Bob's random damascus.

Im not normally one to pile on, he may very well make killer knives? His site is very clean and well done. It would serve him well to put some actual pictures of knives he made on there for our viewing pleasure. Also did anyone catch that he is not making his damascus or forging his blades like Bob does.

Yes, the market will bare, but worth...? Another matter completely.
Perhaps he is or has been an apprentice to Kramer... otherwise and imho, his bonafides don't command anything near those prices. Particularly with PS images (FLAG!).
Design degree, har har... wonder how Bob Loveless, Heron, Dozier, (et all) could even think of stepping up to a grinder without that on their resume?
