    True, for the price I got a couple very good workers. Which is what I intended. Just a shame, a little more time and these babies would be stellar.

    I refinished a Carter for Rick a while back. Because of the soft cladding, it is that difficult to do even by hand (as I did). Just be careful not to remove too much material so the maker's mark gets washed out.

    Marko, What did you use to refinish the knife? Carter leaves some hammer marks on most knives, so I'm guessing either steel wool or sand paper.

    That was a clad knife, not hammer finish. I think I started with 240 to remove vertical scratches and then applied horizontal to 600 grit.
    For a hammer finish, you can still use sandpaper on the bevels (wrapped around blocks of wood) and non-woven abrasives pads or steel wood (never tried steel wool, actually) on the rest.

    Carter's knives are tough to finish and make clean which is why I suspect that he doesn't do it himself.

    Nice,

    Is that a Stefan handle or did it come from Murray?

    OK, no wonder I didn't know it existed.
