    The Williams knife co. has a really awesome looking oyster knife, but it's $275!!!!!
    For $275 that thing had better come with like 15 bushels of oysters!
    Does anyone have any thoughts or past experiences with either of these guys?
    The scary thing is that the oyster knives look really pointy and sharp. Not what you want if you like your hands and really unnecessary in my humble opinion!

    I'm not just saying this, but Luke's oyster knives and shrimp knives look awesome! He can't say it, but I just did.

    Also, I contacted Quintin Middleton and he seemed like a cordial guy, but nothing came of it. I'm still interested in seeing what his knives are all about, so it too bad he didn't follow up.

When a Krameresque knife comes along, I almost always feel that it isn't an upgrade -- just a trend following experiment.

    I think he said that he made that knife so, that he could test out his sharpening system on a Kramer without having to actually mess up a kramer.

    "The knife is made by me. I made it to get a feeling for kramers knives. I've got my own design ready now (primarily focusing on the right convexes right now ;-)"

    Roger that, and thanks for the clarification. I guess that is crazy dedicated in a good way then.

    I'd like to bump this again. There has been some inspiring work out there that I've been oogling.

    Here are a couple from C. Anderson. Love the handles, and I'm a fan of the pointy profile. Plus, those hamons are off the wall!

    I often find myself staring at that one for extended periods of time.
