    I'm glad I have my Carters and I'll continue to get them, I'm sure.

    My info came from the news letter, but also several conversations that i had w/ his staff. The video was probably a Ku "GZ" laminate, not stainless.

    I also dont want to down play the work and skill that goes into making knives from pre-fab laminate. I think he still forges them into shape before grinding them.

    After that lengthy explanation last year about going exclusively to Shirogami #1, he's put out a bunch of Aogami Super kitchen knives in his for-sale inventory. I guess there's no rhyme or reason, but I bought one since I'm a huge fan of Aogami Super when forged in skilled hands.

    The finish is kinda orange peely, very thin, has a rather unusual metallic color. I dunno, the first time I saw it, I immediately thought of old lead toys with metallic paint.

    That orange peel texture is akin to stainless 'kurouchi', and it's what is left after the forging process when the stainless surface has NOT been ground down.

    If there were a non-toxic safe food-grade paint, I would do it to make maintenance easier.
