I'm about to pull the trigger on a funayuki on Carter's site, but I figured I'd see if anyone here has something available. I want to see what the hype is about; just figured I'd see if anyone has one available before I buy new.
Which one are you getting? I just picked up a 4.6 Sun HG and love it. I don't think you will be disappointed.
My first Japanese style knife was a 270mm Carter HG Funayuki.
I have a 6.0 sun funayuki and love it!
She just needs a new dress!
I've always found it interesting, if not puzzling, that when someone mentions buying a gyuto smaller than 240, everyone tries to talk them out of it...but when it's a Carter, measured in "sun"....a smaller knife is A OK. ;-)
Thanks for the words of encouragement, guys! I was also tipped off that Carter has a current discount going, but I didn't realize it because I don't usually check the email address where I receive his newsletter.
Anyways, I went ahead and just picked up the 5.9 sun stainless funayuki here
