    FS: Carter SFGZ deba 5.7sun

    O.k., my car mechanic said I should sell a few knives so he can buy more booze. I'll offer a few, here is the first one:

    Carter SFGZ deba, 5.7 sun, blue steel, double beveled, standard ho handle with horn ferrule. This is almost a collectors' item. I have only seen two of them, ever, Murray does not seem to make them very often. Only selling because I find I rarely use it and have more knives than cash. In fact, I have played around a bit and taken apart one T-day turkey in the past years with it, that's all. I think you could also cut down trees with it, but I haven't tried it out... $320 Shipped in the US.

    Oh, and for a total of $450 I will stick this koa handle on it, it's almost exactly the same size as the original handle:

    I will also offer a lightly used Nenox S1 suji 230 with the quince handle for $320 ($481 new), the Nenox honesuki from Korin with the snakewood handle for $220 (with quince wood $393 new), and a Steve Mullin Pack River 8" ATS-34 (I think) chef knife for $125, just haven't taken pictures, yet.

    WOW! Some sweet knives and awesome handles. Is that Carter deba clad or mono-steel? That would be one BIG chunk o' blue.

    The "s" in SFGZ stands for stainless, as in clad.

    And the "fgz" stands for fukugokazaki or something. Still waiting for Salty's pronunciation guide.

    I used to have a Steve Mullin Pack River chef knife with a custom handle. I loved that thing. Whatever happened to him?

    Thanks guys, stainless cladded blue steel is correct. I don't know whether Steve Mullin is still active. ARizona Custom Knives seems to have some non-kitchen knives, or had them. It really is a very nice knife. I have a Carter that is a touch shorter and a Takeda that is a touch longer, those cover me well enough, otherwise I would definitely keep the Mullin. Here is an older picture, but since I have hardly used it, it's pretty much the same.

    Oh, the handle is a rosewood, probably cocobolo, and it is not completely shiny, maybe ATS-34 is not totally stainless?

    i had a earlier 10 in version of this knife with red colored rosewood handles. Gave it to an old sous chef before we parted ways and he lost it in a restaurant fire. I miss that knife. I would jump on this, but I just paid off that set Randy made for me and Del is making me a set also, so I'm done for awhile. good luck.
