    Carter Sharp

    I just bought a Carter Funayuki SGHZ or something like that. It's not with me yet. But before I have to judge it for myself, I wanted to see how you guys would rate his ootb edge. So I could compare it to my sharpening and see where I am at.

    Out of a 100... How would you rate an out of the box Carter edge?

    I guess I would need to know what a "100" out the box looks like but I've never had any complaints about how sharp a new Carter was. All but one of mine were bought off of him at knife shows and he always sharpens each before giving it to you. In the end, all that really matters is the edge I can put on the knife.

    Having never had a new Carter, I can't say.

    But from the 4 used Carters I've own, you can get a very nice edge on his knives because of the thinness of his blades and the high bevel he puts on them.

    Even Murray's spoons are sharp enough to shave with. Just image how sharp his knives are...
