    "Wow!. I can't remember seeing a Carter that big here for ages"

    "Why is it that people are satisfied with a small Carter, when usually they want something bigger?"

    "I've tried a lot of different ones, but when I bring out my Carter I really get excited"

    "My Carter at first was a little rough, but after a bit of polishing it performs much better"

    Aw crap, now I will never look at my Carter the same ever again.

    It's not the size of your knife, it's the ability to hold an edge until everyone's food is chopped.

    Hahaha, why am I not surprised that Vertigo started this list of "fun Carter facts"?

    "Even though it's outer layer is stain resistant, I never put my Carter away dirty: I carefully clean, dry, and wipe it with camellia oil"

    The best thing about my Carter is how easily it releases product.

    Well my Carter went a funny colour at the end today!

    Inital impressions: love the funayuki! Obviously food release is great and the edge has lasted very well considering it had all kinds or acids to deal with. Its kinda made me question why i use a 240 as my main knife, this thing can handle it all! As i suspected the parer is slightly too long for coring tomatoes or similar in hand tasks but serves as a great general purpose knife. Next week il give my current favourite stone combo on them (400, 5000, strop) and see how they handle.

    What surprised me is how dark a patina that has formed after a days use. Here is a quick pic, hence the funny colour statement ^



    Gotta love the core patina/laminate contrast!

    "Don't dip your Carter in acid, or it will turn funny colors"
