    Asai

    These knives have really caught eye. They have got it all AS steel, damascus, hammer finish, kurouchi. Any of you guy's bought one of these yet?

    Yes, I have one; SG2 PM Damascus. Love it. I saw the new ones from Epicurean Edge as well. I have seen all but the new Aogami Asai knives in person at Epicurean Edge. They are consistently beautiful. I am a stickler for fit/finish, geometry, profile, balance. Asai makes great knives. Looks like Bernal Cutlery carries these as well. Odd, I have not heard of Bernal Cutlery until today when searching for these on Google.

    bernal used to sell sharpening knife services and selling vintage knives on ebay years ago and then opened up a shop

    i hate to be the douche but for 330 your a stones throw from custom and a short walk to a long list of 200- 275$ performers that are prolly just as good if not better. i cant help but be down on something that breached 300 and isnt custom how ya want it. but do what ya do. your the one who has to be happy with it. im sure the AS is killer and the fit and finish looks great.

    ^not sure about that I meant to point out that $300 was pretty far from the custom range.
