I picked these up over the weekend during some horse trading. Paul Chen Practical Plus Katana, Ontario Hell's Belle, and a Cold Steel Tai Pan from the "made in Japan" days.
Too bad Ontario is gone and Cold Steel has gone off the deep end, and it's very sad about the Paul Chen factory burning down but great that they're rebuilding.
You guys have any favorites from the recent past (your lifetime) that are no more? Rekat Hobbit and Al Mar Sere folder are two I remember from my teenage years that I still lust after.
