    187mm Carter kurouchi petty/funayuki

    I really hate to let this one go since it looks so awesome and came in so recently, but I need cash for things other than knives right now given that I just bought a Marko practice gyuto. This is a 6.2 sun kurouchi funayuki that was listed on Carter's site a few weeks ago. It's thin (~1.5mm around the Carter stamp), has an awesome profile, and a great grind. I haven't used it at all but I really want to, because I can tell it's an awesome cutter. I'm pretty sure this is one of those Carters that's right at the boundary of a price bracket. What I mean is if the knife was a tiny bit longer, it would be a lot more expensive. So this is your chance to pick up a cheaper Carter that's not tiny (or a Nakiri) that's still completely new, even has the oil that Murray puts on the knives for shipping.

    With shipping, this knife cost me $232.00. Whoever wants it for $220 shipped CONUS with tracking can have it at that price. Please just help get this thing away from me so that I don't actually end up using it. PLEASE PM me if you want the knife. Don't just post in the thread expecting that I'll check it every five minutes.

    Note: If you want insurance, please ask for it. I can't be responsible for uninsured packages.

    Ah - sweet Jesus on a rubber Pogo-stick .....

    It's literally raining fabulous, affordable knives this week & we're so dammed broke we're eating Bottom Ramen this week.

    Mutter, mutter, mutter

    Separate PayPal accounts. Means I overspend when I want and then have to clean up my own messes as in this case.

    I have a separate account, but I always get busted on delivery. I live in a small town, so I struck a deal with the postman yesterday where he will call me before he delivers, so I can hopefully go undetected. Even if this only works half the time it will save me a few headaches!

    This one appears to have one of his signature wicked-thin tips, no?

    Great knife and profile... here is to a quick sale.

    Yup, the taper to the tip is awesome. A non-nakiri Carter lasting more than an hour on this forum seems a little unusual, lol.
