For those who got a custom Kamon, how did you get a slot? First come first serve? Take a quiz and first 25 who get it right gets the slot?
Also, can I see your knives?
I believe Crocker Cutlery , Unique, Handmade Eating & Cooking Tools | Eatingtools.com , and Modern Cooking | Cooking, Eating & Entertaining are his three retail outlets that occasionally have offerings. And kudos to them for having enough restraint to not just keep them. I would make an awful retailer as I'd just end up not being able to let them go
Was that the Alex Horn 52100? If so, that was a beauty.I actually snagged a monosteel integral there that I've been meaning to post on the new knife thread. There was also a gigantoku which was sold locally and the 255mm gyuto which appears to have sold on the website. Prices were very fair and Gabriel is also super cool. I spent another hour there with Gabriel just showing me all sorts of gems he has in the shop. Definitely recommend this method
