If Santa could grant you one knife this year, which would it be and why? Price is of no importance. You could have any knife in the world...

I wanna see your dream knife. And remember: this knife comes as an extra knife to your big collection.

Hmm,
Gesshin Ino Blue#2 honyaki wa-gyuto 270 ebony/blonde
Or Konosuke ZDP-189 270 wa-gyuto ebony handle blonde ferrule and end cap.
Unfortunately, Santa just informed me I've been a bad mofo so I'll keep dreaming.

Something from one of our custom guys in a cool steel, wrapped in san-mai that performs as well as one of the best Japanese knives.

Are we allowed to ask for another forum member's knife?? That would be cool of santa to take someone else's awesome knife and give it to me ;)

I'd ask for Santa to nab Colin's Bill Burke Suji.

I have to admit that Colins suji is awesome. However I find this knife from Bill extreeeeeeeeeeeeemly interesting!!!
http://epicureanedge.com/shopexd.asp?id=88201

This knife got a really interesting length and profile. I also LOVE the look :)
I might order a copy of Bill (as some of you know Im waiting on a knives from him). Would be awesome with my own Bill Burke knife block!! (containing 3 knives!!!) This one is one of the most beautiful knives Ive ever seen :)

I also admire some of the stuff Devin does. For xmas I think I would go for his 9/11 knife without even seen it :p

Bill Burke's san mai suji with musk ox horn, or nenohi yanagiba honyaki with "nenox" western handle.

I would like to get the knife that Brutus used to stab Caesar. Then sell it for lots and lots of money, buy a new car, have enough left over to get me through another few months after my job ends to find or start something new, and for a trip to visit my folks in Germany. Oh, and I would probably buy a 330 ginsanko sakimaru takohiki from a reputable maker. And some musk ox horn ;)

I am getting a Burke 10" chefs, probably a narrow profiled one. Thought I was certain on the wood handle, but now I am second guessing...

I'd convince Pierre and Murray to combine forces for one super knife. It'd likely end up being a narrower 215mm gyuto, with an ironwood and light spalted maple handle, with a thin red spacer.
