    Wow!!!
    most of them were not high performance knives like these here, even though they were considered as such in their day. I think most of them I paid under 10 bucks for , a few up to maybe 40 and one or two up to 100 if I really thought it was interesting.Lots of trades. I got most of them to give away to culinary students or up and coming line cooks. I usually supply all my cooks with a complete kit of knives, only what I think they need to get by. If they want better they gotta earn it or buy their own.

    Knives:
    4x gyutos (2 shige, del, and rrlover). 1x paring (lr harner). 1x yanagiba (shige). 1x suji (marko) 2x antique cleaver. And a couple handfuls left of shuns that I started with before learning better.

    Stones:
    5x synthetic (4x sharpton glass stones, 1xnameless)
    4x natural (1x katayama, 3x coticule) naturals are mainly used for straight razors but plan on trying them on some knives at some point.

    Sorry to hear that. Next time, remember to 'okay' the knife thing with your future spouse first.
