    Perhaps because it's easier (and takes less time) to get a full-custom from American/Canadian craftsmen than from the few still making them in Japan?

    This forum, maybe...
    2013: Gengetsu, another Rottman custom, something from Dave and hopefully something from Randy. Then in 2013 I have to get a Devin custom.

    Its an American forum and I detect a certain partisan feel which I guess is no bad thing. I yearn for great British made knives for example as a Brit but alas have very little choice. I have no other affiliation to particular makers but must admit am more attracted to Japanese knives over those made in the US I love the traditional aspect and am attracted more by function and a knife that tells a story and love for example kurouchi and forging marks/hammering etc... over prettty shapes/patterns that are neither functional or for me particularly attractive.
