    Came across this blog post. The Lars Scheidler, damascas k-tip kitchen knife, bog oak handle with platinum and diamond ferrul—valued at $98,934.

    https://japana.uk/blog/top-10-expensive-knives-world/

    In my humble cooking knife collection, the price range is $150 to $650. Sadly, the Scheidler just doesn't fit into the parameters I've set.

    For $98,934 I could buy 286 Gengetsus, 240mm gyutos—or 156 Kato 240mm gyutos (if they were in stock)—and have money leftover for some stones—probably more with a bulk discount.

    Passaround?

    Those guys seem to have missed every single Kramer auction knife.

    and I think there was a Hattori that was just off ebay that should've made their list as well.

    German? No thanks.

    Tsukasa Hinoura 165mm Nakiri Coloured Damascus looks interesting. And a real bargain at $544 compared to the list.

    But he’d be wondering what the 287th Gengetsu was like ...

    If we're talking about that "Gem Of The Orient" dagger thing, you could probably do it by stabbing the squash over and over until it's dead.
