I am selling my Carter 7.6 sun (9") Funyaki. The core is white steel and laminated with stainless. I have re-handled the knife with a western handle out of box elder burl and copper resin.
The condition of the knife is good (better than when I recieved it from Carter) It has been tipped, about 2mm broke off, which has been fixed.
There is an overgrind at the tip and a small 2mm overgrind about 2 inched from the heel. Truth be told, I have not noticed a difference in performance as a result. I just recently went through and tried to polish out all of the scratch marks left from Carter, but could not get them all, regardless, it has been through a grit progression on the face of the blade up to 4k. The choil and spine have both been rounded and it is a heck of a comfortable knife.
I believe I purchased the knife for $450.00 ish, selling for $420.00.
PP fees and shipping paid to CONUS.
Please pm me with any questions.
You can see the manf scratches on this pic, most of these are gone now.
I will guarantee satisfaction on this, if you don't like it upon receiving it I will refund all the money paid.
