    I've seen this guys work before. Very cool stuff, and also very pretty.

    Hmm. I don't like the blade profiles but the seamless transition part sounds interesting.

    Personally don't like at all the first blade looks like a water melon (pattern) and the second although innovative is not appealing (to me) also moving parts equals greater potential for failure/breakage.

    Those handles and some profiles look funny. Maybe OK for MOMA but I just can't see it be very well received in pro kitchen environment.

    The folding technology is cool, but most folders I find the handle too small anyway, (anything less then a 5 inch blade). The kitchen knives? Way too expensive, few master blacksmiths can get away with prices like that and this guy doesn't give any qualifications as far as I can see from a quick glance at his site. His carving set looks like a joke from some guy that doesn't understand the simple concept of a kitchen knife. Seriously the one blade must be less then 5 inches long given the overall length, how am I gonna cut a roast with that without sawing it to hell?

    The profile doesn't do anything for me and the knives are way too expensive.

    I think Marko has it right about MOMA and for $1371 a little too much i mean you could have a HOSS knife for that.
    just something different to see and share.

    They look cool. I have no desire to own one, but they look cool.

    I would be the guy getting his finger stuck in the folding mechanism...
