    From a pure design standpoint, no one comes close to Anso for me. Not always the most practical designs for use in my experience, but from an aesthetic standpoint, he is in a class alone.

    If I was choosing based on the number of their designs I own than Ken Onion by a mile. That's just because I can't afford that many Randalls though.

    Ken Onion and Allan Elishewitz for sure. I really like Doug Ritters blade shape though.
