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?
