    If you are looking to purchase knives in Canada I would recommend that you to look at Knifewear in Calgary or Tosho Knife Arts in Canada.

    If you want to start an obsession look at Rodrigue knives. He is a Canadian.
    The Chefs knives to go knives he is starting are in your budget I think.

    Copied from his breaking news thread. Damn close to your $250 and shipping statement.

    - A hair under $300
    - Same handle shape, a little more tapering to the front
    -Similar to my customs. ALL Burl Source woods, hand selected. I will mix up the bolsters and pins a little...
    -Steel is CPM 154 for now at HRC 60.5 to 61
    -Laser? Not really. Thin but not anorexic

    Right now, there is a 40mm flat at the heel.
    Bolster and pins... mostly stainless, but will toss in some copper, G10, maybe brass, or another wood. Whatever I decide to compliment the wood for that knife.
    There will be NO CUSTOM option on these.
    They will be sharp OOTB, but not taken to stones.

    Anything else, feel free to ask.

    Awesome thank you. several seams on my knife roll have given up, so that seems to be my most urgent purchase. I think I would have him do something simple for me 165mm petty or 240 suji rather then order a production line. I wounder how much it would be for something simple, aesthetics are secondary for me. Something that functions incredibly well. Wonder how much it will cost though.

    I think it's worth spending the money to help support a Canadian with a true talent.
