Carter Damascus in International Pro line
I just got the newsletter that mentioned a few of these were available, but when I clicked all the ones I may have wanted had already sold, If anyone scored one and wants to report on them, I'd be *very* interested...
Carter's damascus knives are very nice but very unlike his other knives in many ways. The first things that always come to mind when handling them is that they're thicker and heavier than his standard clad knives by quite a bit. When sharpening them they are VERY tough to grind in comparison to most (any maker's) knives, not just his standard clad knives. I love the pattern and finish of his damascus.
Thx for the interesting observations, Dave. Does the difficulty in grinding also translate into excellence in edge retention?
There's still one available... Very, very beautiful. Slightly out of my budget, unfortunately
