    Thank you for those photos. I have a Takeda 240mm gyuto with super blue steel at something close to HRc 64. I love this steel. It takes an extremely fine edge, takes it quickly and holds it for a long time. It's on the brittle side, but fun to use. Not difficult to care for, even though it's not stainless.

    I just got a Kumagoro hammer finished petit gyuto (135 mm) in a laminated, high-carbon steel. It's a more useful size for my typical cooking needs. The steel is incredible, hard and easy to sharpen. But it wants to take a patina no matter how carefully I care for it.

    As a German option, I also have a WMF 8-inch chef's knife in high-tech Damasteel. The blade is extremely thin. Plucking the point makes it sound off like a tuning fork. It's more stainless and takes a very sharp edge. Cuts like you would not believe and it's all steel -- handle and blade.

    The trouble is that these knives last forever and do what they're supposed to do extremely well. Hard to justify buying additional knives to see how they work out.

    Hey, thanks for including mine in there. The rest of the knives are very nice too :) I think I would have to pick Burke's knife as my favorite.

    Thanks from here also, that's quite a collection

    I would have to agree re: the Burke, that thing is high class (Rader's isn't bad either)

    OK, so I'm confused. Does Shimmer actually own all of these knives and is an expert photographer, or are these artisan knives that he/she thinks rise to the top of the list of artisan knives especially worth owning?

    I'm not sure that shimmer is the owner of the knife by me but I took that picture.

    Great assortment of kitchen knives thanks for posting it.
    I'm digging the Takeda, the Moritaka and the Wakui (I've never seen Wakui before), I like the rustic look.
    That Murray Carter is a looker, too.
    For home I've collected a full set of Al Mar kitchen knives.
    They're a bit more pedestrian than a lot of what you've shown, but they make great kitchen knives just the same.
    I would like to get a couple of the new super hard steel offerings, probably will sooner or later.

    Yeah, thanks Stephan. Hi Bill. And as for photos, mine was taken by Epic Edge, not Shimmer.

    If that is your personal collection, Shimmer, it is awesome. I am honored to one of mine included!

    It must be fun to cook at your house!

    Cheers!
