    Yup, the train has left the station for reasonably priced Katos—I'm kicking myself for not grabbing a western handle Kato when they were in stock.

    You can always buy more knives, just not Shigs/Katos at what you originally paid—it's like buying and selling an apartment in a dodgy neighborhood that becomes gentrified, you'd probably be priced out of that neighborhood.

    Takeda, Nora, and a Carter. Don't regret it. Wanted to try other makers. But they were all exceptional and wish I still had them in my arsenal.

    This is weird. I had a dream last night that I had a Delbert Ealy back that I used to have. I traded it at a get together and have always been happy with the trade. Great knife tho.

    Double post.

    It was strange. I didn’t remember the dream till I saw this thread.

    Knife nightmares is easy. It is usps damaging two honyakis in separate shipments in a two month window.

    Miss a Tansu I sold with a killer ironwood/walrus handle. Also, an older Halcyon 270 (which he doesn’t seem to make much anymore). Miss lots of jnats too.

    Just sold my syousin sakura Ktip beast of a knife but I didnt want to keep two 240mms and my new toyama is just too good. Regret it slightly because it was my first high end japanes knife so it has a special place in my heart

    I wouldn't either after using it. Might get some flak for saying this, but it felt remarkably like my tojiro western deba. Kato had a much better taper of course.

    Hiragatake SLD 180 gyuto, Shigehiro 240 (although I’ll eventually get a 270 instead I think), and either or both of Sukenari YXR7 and HAP40.

    The Hira I’ll just get another one, gave it to a cook who needed a knife. The Sukenaris I got three high alloy steels and decided to keep the ZDP, but now I’m thinking I wasn’t a good enough sharpener at the time to really tell.

    Maybe I’d want my Misono 360 back if I stay at my current job with the huge board, although that might still be more cool than useful.

    I regret selling pride but my dignity was well worth the sale.

    That’s a beautiful beautiful knife...it’s the first time I feel some Kurouchi did make a knife look better.
