    I got mine from Japan Woodworker. They do keep some knives in stock but I recently called over there to review the inventory with the salesperson because I was hoping they might have a deba. All they have in stock at this point are sashimi knives from 9" to 14".

    I would talk to Maksim, it seems he is starting to deal with Master Tokifusa Iizuka. I would expect a long wait through whoever you go through though.

    I love Shigefusa, but my knives aren't drawer queens and the reactivity of his knives concerns me.
    Kramer had a couple "custom-ready made" knives for sale the other day...kinda spendy though.

    A deba is top of my list right now, as for which, dunno yet. Probably Suisin or Sugimoto. Not sure about the long run, maybe an usuba from Suisin's dreamcraft line?

    Not custom? I really want a Takeda Gyuto. Maybe a 210 and use it at home. It just cuts so well.

    I am with Lefty, there is not much that looks like an immediate purchase. On a few lists, but for the most part taking interest into restoring some vintage knives and tools.

    If I had a list, the top spot would go to a Marko gyuto around 225mm.

    I'd like a shig, and something from Dave, Marko, and a Carter. List and knife budget don't really seem to mesh very well at the moment.
