Didn't fit in his light box, lol.


Putting that behemoth to the stones would be a feat.

You don't "put it to the stones", you take the stones to it. :biggrin:

What would you use a 3 feet long knife for? Whale filets?

Whatever it is, here is to hoping the new owner won't be using that hard bamboo glue stick the blade is resting on now...

Dave ought to get the new owners info and make a board.
And judging by the size required, he'd probably need to take the whole Summer to complete it. :D

You would think he wouldn't use a Chicago cutlery board to take that pic.

Why is he calling it a "double bevel yanagiba"? It's clearly just a sujihiki with a willow branch look. I'm not opposed to the knife at all, in fact I find it extremely affordable for it's maker and length and I would portion the **** out of everything with that *****.

Hang on tha wall? Nah man, no knife is "too nice" to be used. If I had a knife, any knife and never used it nor cut myself with it, is it truly mine? You don't own a knife until you truly bond with it and become it's master.

I don't cook anything that would require the use of such a beast. I challenge the future owner of that knife to post some pics of that knife making a PB&J.

Sure that's a suji but that's a deal for a Murray knife, it's price is pretty good when you think about it compared to other knives.

I'm with Butch. It's just classic Carter at a great price for someone who needs it.

I think that is for when the zombies rise and take over. For the times an actual sword is too big and a 240 gyuto is too small...this would be just right

Never mind Plants vs Zombies, play Stupid Zombies. Much more addictive.

They are both good, but I do like the shotgun.

I held the Carter at the OKCA show over the weekend. Very nice if you are in need of blade that long.
