    Most of my rare knives were purchased before the P&D price fixing began, so have appreciated in value. One that’d be up there and I’ll never sell is this custom order left shigefusa Kasumi 270 western gyuto (thank you to a certain member )

    Why do you ask? Are you going to send someone around to my house to nick it?

    Once you have bought it, the cost of a knife is mainly relevent to flippers. Much more important after that is how it performs.

    You should instead ask "what is the best performing knife that you have?"

    Obviously he picked it up from post office, and who can wait till home to unwrap your new knives? Most of the unwrapping pics are taken in the car:D

    Mine would certainly be this Hattori KD. Cants say its value as it varies quite a bit depending on buyer & seller if one can even find.. 20190627_213102.jpeg
