I figured out which knife to spoil myself with (my wife let me) after getting the big call a bit over a month ago.
I knew I had my sights set on another Carter, but I had a bit of trouble deciding which one, for sure. After trying out a beautiful IP KU gyuto, and the knife I've been trying to convince my good friend Rick to sell for a while now, I made my decision. It, to be quite honest was a no-brainer!
Firstly, I need to thank Rick for selling me one of his favourites, and secondly, I should thank Pierre for making Rick a knife he actually enjoys using even more than my new beauty. Here it is - a 7.6 sun KU sujihiki, by Murray Carter, with a beautiful custom handle by Isaiah.
I think I now understand why quite a few guys go with a short suji as their all-arounder. I've used this knife for everything I can think of, and it's amazing me with its performance.
Between this and my pettysuki, I think I'm set for a while now...right???
