I ran across this knife maker... I'd never head of them before this? Anyone here have experience with this maker?
They look interesting... especially the santoku
I will say that having a backdrop for the knife photos of out of temper chocolate looks neat, it's like nails a chalk-board for me
No: Name of maker
Description of steel
No information at all. Just send $720 by Paypal for a 10" Damascus Chef Knife.
The backdrop is least of any concerns.
Edited to add: Here's his web site http://middletonmadeknives.com/index.htm
To a large extent it's just a man, fire and his hammer. Fascinating and while I'm not sure what to think (he knows he making "Japanese style knives" he struggles with the word gyuto.) I respect his effort.
Saggy handles...puts you hand in an awkwark position at rest.
I REALLY like this one:
Where you at Quintin?! I know you are/have been around here somewhere. Those knives don't look like that on accident! Kramer, Rader, Hucks...I think "Harner" is lost in there somewhere.
The are surprisingly nicely profiled, but the grinds look suspicious, especially at that cost. Plus if you cant see irregularity/issues in the grind in a product photo....it's disconcerting.
*edit* just watched the video. I think he really should show up here! He seems like a cool guy.
He has a very nice website, and I liked the video.

I see one knife, in particular that I'd love to own. I think his stuff looks good.
Maybe I missed it, but what kind of steel does he use?
eh, this one looks funny to me. Like weirdly thick.
