I've wondered the same, but he pops up from time to time, and I've seen pics of his newer knives. I was always o the fence about his stuff before, but the new ones make me want to give one a go-around.

He's alive and well, and just put this jewel in the mail:

Nice pick up Rick. I bought two of his recently (on the way), but that one is a beauty.

Yeah, a 240 and I also got that petit gyuto that was advertised on the other forums and he is making a sheath for it. I think I am going to use that as my travel knife.

I have one of his 240 gyutos with a convex grind. After a little tlc (slight profile adjustment to pick up the nose a bit, and some sandpaper on the spine), it is a knife worth far more than what he was charging when I last checked.
His W2 is pretty amazing.

975$ for a 270 dammy gyuto does not seem under priced to me.

Well, I've been away from the forum for awhile, but I was just contacted by Wildboar for the Fowler pass around, which I joined ages ago. First off, thanks to Wildboar, for contacting me, & to Niloc, for letting me jump him in the line (I live in Alexandria, VA & it makes sense to pass it on to me, instead of sending it up to NY).

I'm so happy I got this right before Thanksgiving, while I'm still unsure of my sharpening skills, I don't mind testing it for prep. This year for T'giving, I'm smoking 2 12 lb. Turkeys on my WSM, making pickled shrimp, bean dip, spinach-Parmesan side dish, & maybe, roasted cauliflower w/pomegranate seeds & yogurt cheese. How's everyone else's T'giving prep going? Once I run this lovely knife through it's paces, I'll mail it on to the next person. Thank you again to Mr.Fowler for letting us use his knife, & give our feedback...Thistle/Linda

I just sharpened a 260 gyuto from Stephan and his W2 is some of the best i've ever sharpened. It took a killer edge and released the burr faster than anything i've had before.
Looking forward when it is my turn to use the knife...

I need to get my comments and some pics up for the pass-around knife. Should be able to over the long weekend. It was a knife with personality!

My T'giving was great, I'm still walking around in a food coma. I think my smoked turkeys were a little under, so I sliced off the breasts (which were done), & hacked up the carcasses for stocks- have 3 different ones going in crockpots. 1 will be a turkey pho, for my daughter, who LOVES pho ga-she only eats the noodles & meat, I like the bean sprouts, broth, & Thai basil (I can take or leave the noodles). I have lots of family coming over tomorrow, so I will use the knife for prep, for whatever I come up with-hope everyone is having a peaceful holiday weekend...
