    Is he at the same level as Carter ?

    Im talking about his mid level, the ones from CKTG

    Of the knives I have experience with from this line, I would say some are outstanding (argueably in the class as a typical Carter) but most are in the very good performers category in terms of pure cutting ability. As far as stainless steel goes, it is argueably one of the best. The fit and finish is generally very good. I have seen a few with significant grind imperfections, twists and/or bends in the blades (as well as some other minor imperfections) and as far as I know, Devin personally rectifies these sorts of issues when they are brought to his attention. If it is any indication, most of the folks I know personally have bought a DTITK and of those, all but one still have one, including myself.

    TamanegiKin, that beauty is a 6.9 sun IP funayuki (Kurouchi) with ironwood scales and red fiber liners. It has Copper G10 lamiate bolster and the height is 47mm.
    Did I miss anything, Rick?

    With $500 to use... as my *only* gyuto, I'd go with a DT ITK. I've been really happy with mine for those times when I want a stainless steel blade to use. Either that or a Konosuke Fujiyama - love that to use that thing. Have a bit left over from the $500 to spare, too.

    But if it's a gyuto to join a stable of other gyutos already on-hand... for me, I'd go for a Watanabe because I've never tried one and I'm curious. But if I stick with blades I've used, I'd still say either a DT or a Kono Fujiyama. Haven't put in enough time with a Carter to join that bandwagon just yet

    Add me to the list, I still have mine and have no intention of parting.

    If I had another $500.00 I would put it down on one from Marko, and I have also been eyeing the DT ITK cleaver.

    KS 240 Masamoto and save $200 for weed. (Humboldt County Purple Haze)

    No offense to Marko (sorry bro) but are you guys serious? He's never made one?
