    Great knives...all of them!
    Getting a Carter puts you into dangerous territory. You'll seek performance just like it and not stop until you manage to find it, your wallet be damned!
    Pierre can and will do it, and the DT I am playing around with is nice...not the same, but nice.
    Anywho, enjoy your knives

    I have owned 3 carters. The first one was a 6 sun wa-bocho with wa handle. I liked it okay but sold it to buy a longer HG funayuki. I liked that okay too but never quite bonded. Was hard to put my finger on it exactly why and after a while I sold it too.

    Recently I got a riveted handle 5.5 sun wa-bocho. Initially my reaction was sort of "meh" and I was kicking myself for getting "suckered" yet again. However, every time I used it it grew on me. The handle for me is fantastic (I like narrow handles) and the knife does what I want. It is very fast and cuts like demon, without feeling fragile. I truly love it at this point and it looks like it is here to stay.

    In summery I guess not every Carter is for every one, but when you find "the one" or "the ones" they are truly amazing.

    Yeah, I really love my SFGZ funayuki. I hooked my neighbor up with one first and decided they were so cool, I had to have one for myself.

    "I'm off to polish my Carter."

    "I spend more time looking at my Carter than I do using it!"

    "I let my girlfriend use my Carter and she scratched it!"


    I think we're on to something here.

    Lol,

    "Everone wants a big Carter but most have to settle for a shorter one"

    "when I hold my Carter it feels like it wants to be used"

    "You can say what you like about how my Carter looks, but when you try it you will be satisfied""
