    Carter's pricing

    Carter's pricing seems to be wildly different for some variation in size.
    http://www.cartercutlery.com/japanes...kugozai-series
    The same line of knives and shape, only one is 20mm more, and it costs an extra $120?

    Also, his prices seem to different even for the same knife shape, line, and size. For example here:http://www.cartercutlery.com/japanes...-handle-series
    The same 5.3 sun Stainless Fukugozai Funayuki, Riveted Handle, costs $164 and $190. Does anyone know why?

    I think the weight of the knife comes into play.
    The heavier the knife, the more steel used hence the bigger price tag.

    That 6.1 sun knife has been on the site as sold out for an age. Most likely old pricing.

    Also, blue super is more expensive than white.

    Why not just ask Carter, or whomever is answering the questions there?

    Weight makes sense, but $120 more for 20 more mm?
    Blue is more expensive than white but both those knives are blue.
    Has that knife been sold out forever?

    I didn't mean to say anything against this forums and/or it's members, just that perhaps Carter himself could give an exact answer to the question about his pricing.

    Of course not. Also Jason often answers for Murray here.
