    Kramer and his knife offerings plus success have gone to his head!
    I have no problem with someone ca$shing in on success, its the American Way but this is absurd!
    There is no $50K value in this knife and to offer this knife at that price, well I’ll leave you to offer judgment.
    I have a Honyaki from a maker judged the best in Japan, Custom ordered and delivered at a fraction of the Kramer price. These knives do not usually get out of Japan because of the price and the Japanese believe we are not worthy.
    I guess Kramer feels we are not worthy also.

    My thought was, take the $50,000 and buy 1500 Victorinox Swiss Army Fibrox Pro 8” Chef's, the perennial Cooks Illustrated winner, and give them to people with dull kitchen knives. Virtually everyone, with a few exceptions, who cooks at home.

    The world would be a better place.

    Yeah, I don't really understand it. I believe they give a (10%) portion of each sale to some charitable endeavor, which is nice but the price has completely left the parameters of reality.

    Absolutely.

    I watched this video a few weeks ago and it's great. It'll most likely be overkill for all but the most hardcore aichmomaniacs. But for fanatics, enthusiasts and obsessives, it's a great watch.

    Thought I'd put in a plug for my current favorite knife:
    The Cheetah from FINDKING.
    Aside from a very pretty damascus pattern, it's kept its edge very well, and most of all, fits my wookie-sized hands. Ergonomically, it's the best knife I've ever worked with, letting me both get a good grip for thin slicing and put force into it when needed.
