Carter 5.3 Sun RH-SFZG Funayuki
This funky little devil is my brand-new, 5.3 sun (6.25" or 158.75mm) riveted Murray Carter SFGZ funayuki, in stainless laminated white steel.
USPS dropped it off on porch this afternoon and it has seen minimal use: two potatoes, an onion, two tomatoes, a sheet of paper, and a bit of arm hair. An extremely light patina has begun to form on the core, but nothing more.
The knife is very thin with a consistent convex grind; the scales are secure on the tang. The fundamentals of a great cutter are all met, and the knife performs exceptionally well (from the little I've seen). Beyond that though, this is a roughly finished and inexpensive knife from Murray Carter and should be regarded as such. It is, in every sense of the word, "rustic."
Retails new for $164.30 plus Murray's preposterous $15 shipping; since the little testing I did today meant putting the edge to some wood a few times and getting some color on the core, I'll ship it to your U.S. address for $140 PayPal.
