    As for the suj/scimitar decision: If you're not breaking down large piece of meat i.e. beef sides, whole pigs, goats, etc, then you probably don't need a scimitar and a suj. will suit you just fine. But on the other side, scimitars are just fun to have.
    Even for Son, beating the one minute record for that Carter suji will be difficult,(but not impossible). We're going to need to start using a stop watch if this keeps up

    I got that scimitar for my brother in law who kills and butcher deer. It's a great light-weight but robust knife that'll be available for the foreseeable future. If you're set on one, wait and see what Son has to offer then make a decision.

    Otherwise, just get a sujihiki, which does a lot of things well, but I wouldn't use it for butchering anything.
