    This is all correct EXCEPT, the higher "level of finish" changes the geometry. In my opinion, it isn't better. It's not bad but it's definitely not better.

    Haha. NOPE. At least not yet. That would definitely be a major pain.

    Maybe. I feel it's a negligible difference, but he does need to remove metal to polish the High Grades, so you are right, it would change the geometry (in a minute way). Like you said, it may not be better, or bad, just different.

    ps I'm glad you kept the handle on. For now.

    I have a few Carter funayukis and combined they are certainly the most used ones. The SFGZ ones are more robust and great all purpose knives IMHO, the HG is thinner and I have the most fun when using it for thinner, more precise cuts.

    Even though the CKTG Carter's I received had the Carter characteristics there was something about them that was off. (besides the poor finish)

    The Carter that I got during his last sale has quickly become one of my favorites, but I will also say that when I pick up my nakiri, it almost always wins out in the fun department. I really use it a lot when I start making soups in the fall. I've also been using the sheep's foot parer Pierre made. I find myself peeling things a lot more and using it as a chopper just to see what it can do.
