    Carter IP Gyuto 2k

    I just followed a link from Facebook and saw this
    http://www.cartercutlery.com/7-9sun-...o-chefs-knife/

    And it sold almost immediately!

    Or you han grab a KU 170mm petty for $200

    65mm tall? jeez. Not a big fan of the top to bottom finish, either, makes it hard to touch up.

    I had one that almost looked just like that, sold it for $700 on here a couple of years ago. That's insane.

    Carter makes great knives but for 2k you can get 4 devin ITK's or one Devin or Rader dammy, not much of a question in my mind which way I'd go..

    Jason, I bought that one from you and I just sold it in July for not much more than that. You're right - that is insane.

    That is a hefty price. I had to sell my 225 recently and sold it for a bit over $700 IIRC. Looks like chances are dim that I ever re-buy an IP - and don't get me wrong, they are excellent knives, just completely out of my price range now.

    Crazy price, but good for Murray. This knife is classic upscale Carter. I like it, and if you're a Carter fan, this is a stunner. He needs to make some dammy again. Ahem...Murray?
