    WTB: Carter funayuki (WA or western)

    So - I have decided to get myself a Carter funayuki - it was just a question of time anyhow

    So - what am I after:
    - blade of 160 - 180 mm
    - blade height not more than 45mm, just enough for the knuckle clearance (40 mm seems enough on my WA handled ko-bunka)
    - stianless clad blade, not a KU
    - the knife should be a great slicer (aren't they all?) with good food release.
    - no damage, usage marks are OK as long as the knife has been taken care for.
    - WA or western handle (does not have to be original)

    I actually had 2 offers already, but I just thought - let's see what is out there. This is going to be my 'go to' knife for many kitchen tasks, so I would like it to be 'the one'.
    So - show me what you've got

    Congrats on the offers; I put out a WTB a while back and got no bites. Good luck.

    Hey there's one left on knives ship free. I've got the same one but with olive wood and I love it!

    There indeed is one (actually two) there, I just wish for slightly more belly. Something like HERE

    Yeah, looking at it compared to that and mine it looks thinner.

    OK - there have been some development. Soon this brand new Carter should be on its way to its new owner ... me I hope to have it in around 2 weeks. Review will follow shortly after. For now just the size: length 170mm, height at the heel: 47mm. And yes - I really like that wild purple-red handle

    Big thanks goes to Taylor from Curter Cuttlery for his help. Let me just say - it was worth subscribing to "Free Knife Care Tips" from Mr. Carter.




    P.S. There is more where this baby came from ...

    No, not stainless. KU from carter is Gokunan-tetsu. Thickness should be under 2mm.

    I've read somewhere that that Gukunan-something can come in both stainless or carbon. Anyway, nice looking knife
    Congratulations and waiting for review!
