I hear a lot of knifemakers' names bounced around here, but my frugal upbringing and a frugal wife have forever locked me in to the dingier side of the tracks.

But whilst I was browsing, I came across William Henry's web site. Pricey stuff. Have any of you collector types had occasion to hold one? Is this stuff the top quality they claim?

Not in this lifetime or Universe! :ohmy: For that kind of money I could have the new OPPO Planar Magnetic earphones and the H1a Digital to Analogue Pre-amp/earphone amplifier plus a new Fallkniven PXL folder that I sold and now regret. ;)

I am not sure I like them but like the William Henry site it would be interesting to touch one.

Oh my! Now add a new pair of Dynaudio powered speakers to the above preamp and Planar earphones!
Seriously, the knives available from the makers mentioned here are superb stuff.

Yes, me too! I thought I was finished with knives and the money from my sales went into my new Samsung Smart TV for my man cave...but here I am back to knives again. Oh well, they are in good hands now and I can buy other knives as my piggy recovers. :unsure:

I tend to give away my unwanted things since I learned a long time ago that the second hand price for most things will not replace it and I think in general if I do sell something I am always unhappy after so I feel much better if I pass it on to someone I know and who will appreciate it .

Visit either of the custom knife shows in NY if you want to handle the some of the world's trophy knives. The March show features more custom work. The November show has a few more tactical knives than the March show but still has a good share of amazing high end knives from around the world. Blade Show is another great place to check out some of these wonderful blades.

I know, right? .... interesting just to touch one.....

I'm hoping to make it down to Eugene for the Oregon Knife Show in April. (Bob, I'll contact you once I know for sure.)

I get a little giddy thinking about holding some of the knives there..... but as someone else mentioned, my collection is a couple of paygrades lower down the scale...
