    I have no regrets, but two knives I got rid of that I miss are:

    • 240 Gengetsu SS gyuto in prestine condition, with saya, circa 2013.
    • 240 Konosuke Fujiyama gyuto, W2, circa 2013.

    They are both currently in good homes.

    This thread reminds me I haven't sold any knives yet, and should probably keep it that way

    Yep. Don’t miss them. I miss the cash I could have if I held on to them for a few years. I sold them all for half or a third of what they go for now.

    Kato standard profile looks more to my liking. Had I purchased one of those instead of a workhorse I’d likely still be in possession of it.
    I was on the hunt back then for a shigafusa 240mm Kasumi that would be perfect for me. None is of the ones I used and owned worked out. I’m still keeping an eye out for a shig.

    Had to sell a few knives because of the pressing need of the — little — money. Amongst those a Hiromoto NS-10 270mm, a simple knife but a great performer, I guessed I could find again in better times but never succeeded.

    Same one I liked?

    I needed knife money so I sold a Suisin 270mm real Kiritsuke. At too low a price. I've absolutely have no need for that knife but may have to buy another.

    Don't regret selling, but regret I couldn't keep them. I feel this way about most knives I've sold though....

    Perfectly balanced for me and the profile was the best. Only tiny negative if I had to find something, food release could be better with a little more convexity.
