I'm sure everyone here has one knife they'll always be chasing, be it due to cost, perhaps the line was discontinued, craftsman retired etc.. Perhaps a Hattori KD, a particular antique european knife, maybe some natural stone from some long closed mine in Japan?
For me, it's probably the Nenox C1 cleaver. I'm sure there's better cleavers out there and I could just pick up a Hattori FH (again) which I hear is pretty much identical. But the Nenox range is just so iconic, even if it is so horribly over priced. And given that the cleaver was discontinued so long ago, it's even more desirable.
But hey, a man can dream, can't he?
So what's yours?
