Definitely looks like a Kramer Chevron Damascus Gyuto:

Nice knife if you can get one...

#5 looks like a Devin Thomas ITK -- the only really nice knife I have -- the AEB-L steel never rusts but keeps a wicked edge forever...

Rader's integral bolster western handle knives are amazing. He produces some of the most beautiful knives out there -- but it will cost you ;) Fowler is newer to kitchen knives. I have a couple of his, and he is playing around with profile and styles a bit, but his knives keep getting better IMO. The Gesshin Heiji from Japanese Knife Imports is an interesting line. Jon at JKI brings in some really exciting knives and his service is above top notch. His site is like a knife porn site.

I give up on the idea of ever owning a custom Kramer. And I agree with the previous poster that the Devin Thomas ITK is amazing. I have a 270mm gyuto and it keeps its edge for a scary long time.

Just keep in mind that Rader is mostly making these knives to an individual's requested specs. His knives are definitely not 'delicate' and he prefers western to wa handles, but I've handled this knife of Mr. Rader (link below) and it is amazing.

I have that knife too in Ginsanko, it has been a work horse form me. I love that handle, although I had to send it back recently because it was starting to loosen up (after 5 or so years). At least they took care of it for a minimal fee.

This is a couple months late, but I'm hoping someone can still answer this question for me. I was just recently given a copy of Lucky Peach #3, and I like many of you, am very intrigued by the collection of knives on the back cover. I'm mostly interested in the Hankotsu style knife on the bottom right. Can anyone tell me what brand that is? I've looked at a few of similar style, but none seem to look quite as nice.

Thanks,

Ben

Did you mean bottom left? The bottom right one in the OP photo is a Takeda and doesn't look to be hankotsu style. Anyhow, most of them that I have seen people have are the Misono but Kikuichi has it in their elite carbon line too. Masahiro also has one I think. IMO I'd probably go with the kikuichi.
