Shorter knives aren't always so popular around these parts, but I figured I'd share a snap of two new blades that seem like they'll suit me pretty well:
Carter 170mm and Shigefusa 180mm.
Another pic of the Carter; forgive the bad angle:

I actually really prefer shorter blades. Granted I just cook for myself or a few others, but they do well with single veg. Great looking knives. Looks like Carter has started to offer handles that don't need replacing. Not sure how I feel about that, as they were something that was fun to put something custom on.
Referring to the Carter and Shig.

After first long consideration what knife to get, than after deciding that it is going to be a Carter funayuki - I have with some luck and patience picked up this one yesterday. 167mm Heel to tip, 47mm height at the heel, blade thickness of 1.6mm half way towards the tip, weight 114g.
And while I know some may feel differently - I love the way the handle looks (and feels).
The first meal for the Funayuki - simple sauce for pasta.
