This from a guy who is trying to sell you a gem handled 3/16 inch thick hollow ground 440C chef knife?
I'm a wee late in responding, but I must say that pretty much everyone else covered the bases as well or better than I ever could.Not that I disagree, but because I don't know anything about him or his past, why? His work looks excellent.
Wow...I agree. Knock 10K off and he might have a winner.Jay Fisher isn't selling knives, he's selling "art". Check this pair of chef knives - they're NICE, but $14,000 for the pair? https://www.jayfisher.com/Concordia_Talitha_Deschutes_Jasper.htm
I get it. It all depends on whose buying and how much they believe it's worth.I don’t know this guy. His work appears to be well constructed, and while it’s not really my “style” I can appreciate what it took to arrive at the finished result. If he is able to command those prices, and get them, more power to him. Wish we could all do that. What makes a Van Gogh painting worth millions and one I made being worth little to nothing? Someone says it is “worth” that. I think it is wrong to look at another makers work and assign our own value to it. Have you ever had someone looking at one of your blades and say something like “but I can buy the same thing at Windows to Walls for $12!”? It’s bad enough that potential customers do shit like that. Regardless of how you feel about the dude, or his work, it doesn’t do anyone any good to say bad things about his prices. Don’t get mad at me, it just bugs me when people complain about what a maker charges. Ranting over, you all keep it real.
