    2nd 5.9sun International Pro Nakiri, Damascus, Ironwood, $1959.74

    That's a hell of a "second".

    Gotta say that most of those custom handles are gash. Simple ho wood with blonde or black ferrules would be much better, e.g.

    So much nicer than his current offerings.

    Yep. The main reason I didn't pull the trigger is because the handles are offensive to my eyes.

    Agreed, I was especially disappointed with his international pro batch, not one knife over 5 sun.

    For the record, there are currently 5 Carters in everyday use in my blocks. maybe a dozen or so stored away. Looking at one of those links, I found several of the knives I paid something like $100+ for are now $400. If he can sell them at the price great, that is supply and demand but sure won't be to me. Makes a guy feel like there actually are some advantages to getting older. I was there first! Ethan Becker (Joy of Cooking) and I used to compete with each other to see who had first crack at Murray's Japanese made knives.
