No plans for copying Carter. His grind - shallow convex combined with a thin geometry is not that different from mine (mine is a little thicker), but I like profile I am using better.
I do have to give Mario (RRLover) a huge thumb-up on sharpening. His are some of the most uniform (and thinnest) bevels I have seen and his Carter was the sharpest knife I have even handled. Need to fly to IL to take one-on-one class with the man. Very, very impressive.

I'd love to be in a passaround as well. Really like the Masamoto-like profile I've seen on some of your early knives!
I'm pretty sure that the guy who walks into SLT and proceeds to bash a Zwillig Kramer against the counter to test its edge retention isn't going to pop up here.
Just read the cheese knife post. I stand corrected.
