    Carter questions

    Questions

    1: Does he brand his High Grade Funayuki series with "MS"?
    2: Why does Stainless Fukugozai Series have all kind of logos while High Grade Funayuki series only got Carter-logo?
    3: Anyone know when he got the next sale?

    No.

    I don't know for sure, but I'd speculate that it's to keep someone from polishing the blade of an SFGZ to pass it off as a HG.

    3: Anyone know when he got the next sale?
    If they do, they're not saying.

    Not all the SFGZ have all the logos. I recently purchased three of them and they only have the Carter on them.

    definitely buy... been using my 5.0 sun SFGZ at work for the last month and a half... the edge lasts a very long time... very easy to sharpen... cuts like a dream... planning to sell some of my knives to buy a 6.5 sun if one is available soon...

    You are absolutely 100% correct sir

    Apparently he is working on a big batch of kitchen knives right now, per his newsletter - 100 or so hg series with new handle options - and he might have a sale celebrating his move to a new location. As strange as it sounds, might make sense to wait...

    Rumors Gotta love them.
    I want something extraordinary from Carter, so Ive sent a mail to his apprentice. If damage is not to bad, prepare for some really cool pics :P

    I got a 240mm IP gyuto in White steel, with a bad ass taper(2.8mm thick at the handle, soooo thin at the tip) and nice grind from a him about 8 months ago. He'll do exactly what you want. It was a good long wait though - 18 to 20 months, I think. Price wasn't too bad when I locked in. If I were to guess, its gone up a bit.
