Been looking for a chef’s knife for a long time to replace the Le Creuset one I’ve had for more than 20 years. Even looked at them in Japan, but too expensive. Spotted via giz is a kickstarter for bulat knife.
Quite tempting. $100 is a reasonable price point, especially if the knife is as good as it says.
An alternative is the kytcho knife, which looks less elegant / more space-age and is half the price at €49.
