    WTB Carter KU any shape

    The title says it all. I want to try a carter out. I know the KU knives are his most inexpensive so that's what I'm looking for. Please let me know if you have any carter you are willing to part with.

    If someone would let me borrow or trade a knife by carter I would also be very interested in that. Please let me know!

    Thanks all

    Sorry I don't have one for sale, but you may not want to limit to kurouchi as his Stainless Fukugozai knives are also very affordable and great cutters.

    Brad,
    If you are interested in a kU Carter, you should consider the Fujiwara Terayasu Nashiji line, I have the Gyuto going out for the passaround which you signed up for, PM me your address and I'll ship it to you first. I find there performance is very similar.

    I have one KU kiritsuke Siji and it's a brilliant knife. I just ordered this 6.5 sun KU Freestyle because it fills a space I'm lacking and secretly I didn't want to spend $600 for Vlad's gorgeous Shigefusa)

    New Cater en route -

    having used and sharpened both many times over, i cant say i agree... carters tend to be thinner at the spine and behind the edge than the fujiwara teruyasu nashiji across the board... its noticeable in cutting.
