Mahalo guys!
Hi Arthur. Thank you so much.
Yes it has been a lot of fun...hunting.....digging under rocks.....listening for whispers...and then scoring :D
And you are correct...the journey is far from over!

My biggest unicorn is a Fujiyama Honyaki by Ashi. But there are several others too :twisted:

The real treasures are revealed!

Not that all the other knives in Ray's collections aren't treasures, cause they are.

I believe Omega has the ultimate collection. But I'm not competing with anyone. I have these knives because they make me smile every time I use them. I'm a collector for sure....but not a "collector" if you get my drift. I know Omega is the same. He loves his knives for what they are, not for the perceptions of what they might be or their rarity.

No doubt. I noticed the patina on your Fujis. Phenomenal arsenal you have there.

Thank you bro'! I have never been one for cleaning my knives of their daily use patina. Damn, if I did I would never get any real work done ;)
