    This is the list of the knives that was stolen last month from my home.

    Well after searching through all of my stuff for the insurance claim that my roommate put in for the items stolen from the house. I compiled a list of the more important and valuable pieces that were stolen. I am not listing a lot of the vintage knives as many of those were in unusable condition waiting for my refurbishment projects. I am however listing many of the knives that I actually collect. I was building up a very nice and very pristine set of La Trompette Sabatiers and a pristine set of Henckels Grand prize model 102's. I also lost a few Shigs, Watanabes and my first Carter That I bought off a kid a few months ago because it was too much knife for him. Never even used it. Had it for a week at most. If you guys suddenly see someone from New york or Jersey selling Knives they never had before let me know. I had a lot of knives and I mean a lot. I have been collecting for over 25 years and I have had literally thousand of knives pass through my hands. these were special. Well here goes. The insurance company wanted the dates the knives were purchased and the reciepts. Who keeps receipts. They are paying a a total of $250 dollars total for the knives . Says that is the maximum they will pay. Ass@#$%s

    never used the Shigs, Watanabes or the Carter Didn't want to use those until I learned to sharpen properly and then when I did I never got around to it and in the case of the Carter, I didn't have it long enough.lol

    How many of the more expensive ones have you purchased straight from a dealer/maker? If so the dealer/maker should have a reciept of your purchase in their books.

    The $250 they offered is just a pure insult...

    Depressing indeed.

    How were they stored? It's hard to imagine how the thief (or thieves) were able to carry such a haul without being noticed.

    Sorry Son. Terrible.
