    Greetings from Costa Mesa, California

    Hi my name is Richard. I grew up filleting fish on sportfishing boats in Newport Beach with a 10" forschner. I was a cook at Howard Johnson's years ago. I love to cook at home. Just joined the madness with a misono ux10 gyuto 210mm, tojiro senkou birds beak, and FH hattori parer. I have a boardsmith maple magnum being made right now and Dave asked me to join. I will buy more and more knives and much longer ones, but my dream knife that I want currently is a santoku. Yes, I know not cool in most knife forums I want a hattori KD santoku i am on the list with Koki, but doubt Hattori will ever get it made with his health and age. If anyone ever has one to sell let me know. It is my unicorn knife.

    Welcome, Richard!

    You're right, we will probably see no more Hattori KDs made, but there are alternatives. Any one of the bladesmiths in the forum is able to make a damascus santoku for you that may well take the place of your "unicorn". Look at some of the work done by Pierre Rodrigue, Randy Haas, Michael Rader, Devin Thomas, Bill Burke, Del Ealy, David Broadwell, Will Catchside, Mike Davis, Butch Harner, Marko Tsourkan and, of course, Dave Martell.

    Thanks for the advice on some custom makers. I am sure I will get some custom knives made and love them. I will still want my unicorn. Salty had one, but think he already sold it awhile back. I know they are out there, just very elusive

    Hi Richard, welcome.

    You should post a "WTB" thread in the B/S/T subforum here. Who knows, maybe your unicorn will make an appearance for you.
