Lot’s of good choices. What draws me to the new Lee Valley ones is the Japanese style tang and socket construction. What prevents me from the Barr are that many sizes are only available in an expensive set. What hesitates me from the Blue Spruce is the long lead time for him to make them. What worries me about vintage is my lack of knowledge and not picking out a lemon.

So if I go the imperial route it looks like probably ashley iles or veritas. The Barr’s being forged does appeal to me though, maybe as a treat if I really get into this.
