Dude, seriously...that much for a boning knife?
Uh, I meant boning, like a fish.
Ok, has there ever been a single knife made (for kitchen use) that's worth $300? Let alone a $400 or $500 retail price.
Seriously, I ask those who actually know about this stuff, what makes a really knife that much better than a good quality knife? I'm not talking dollar store specials, just a decent $40, 8" kitchen knife that you sharpen every so often.
