    If youre having problems, just call and talk to Jason. He's always been very helpful. -Especially if youre trying to decide between a couple knives: its helpful to have someone who is actually holding the knife describe it to you.

    Im glad that this sale is giving people the chance to become Carter owners.
    FWIW, I think that the "basic" SFGW or whatever the stainless clad line w/ simple 2 rivet black western handle is called is one of the best values in the hand-forged knife world. -all performance; no glitz.
    I got one for free and was originally thinking id sell or give it away, but its still on my knife rack and id probably sell my high-grade first.

    +1. I paid something like 125 for a 6 sun funayuki and it cuts just as well as anything else I own.

    Had a Carter high grade funy in W and sold it. My 6 sun SFGZ riveted handle AS cuts just as well and I find that pedestrian black handle amazingly comfortable. I much prefer it to the high grade I had.

    Yeah, i really like the plain black handles... they remind me of work shoes: not pretty, but comphy and durable.

    Well I'm going to have to include my love for the SFGZ too. It's just a plain ole piece of cutlery that works. It's easy to get screaming sharp and stays sharp long enough for home use.

    Likewise. I bought a 5.4 sun SFGZ WS funayuki for my ex-gf. I wish I had put the money I spent for her knife toward buying one for myself. Great cutting knife and, surprisingly, kept a good edge for quite a while.

    Well, my Carter Nakiri is shipping today and now for the painful waiting process. Question, since only the two rivet handle was available that is what I ordered. How difficult would conversion to a wa-handle be? Has anyone done this on one of these Carters? Am I crazy for wanting to do this?

    I thought the same thing when I ordered my first one. And I'm sure that the handle wizards on here could do it, but once I had it in my hands and started using it, I decided that I really like it and it's beautiful in it's own way. At this point I'd have a hard time killing something that's served so well / has no flaw other than being simple and utilitarian.
