    I'm Feeling These Carters

    I love the Carters recently on sale, wish they were bigger though: http://www.cartercutlery.com/japanes...s/new-products

    What's shocking is that only 5 years ago, these would have been gone in a day or two. Some have been up for a long time. The handles look pretty nice, about time he started offering nice non-custom ordered handles.

    I said it before, and I'll say it again, if I had to pick one knife to use it would probably be a Carter.

    Same. Some nice pieces up there just recently added. His new handles and new photography are both win.

    That 10.9 sun SFGZ has been calling my name for 6 months now.

    As much as i love my Carters, i think it's got something to do with the fact that you pretty much can get a nice custom at the same price.

    Yeah I think the number of new custom makers around who charge way less than Carter are the reason they aren't so popular now. Perhaps this will lower his prices? I don't know, but for many of his knives you could get 2 customs for the price of 1 of his and still have change

    Very true. I know I'd go that route, for the most part, but Carters are special knives.

    I love my Carter Nakiri, so much so that when the funds become available I'd love to order a Gyuto from him but there's no rush, I have a large stable of Gyutos. His knives cut like the dickens, which is the most important part.

    Yup! I'm just waiting for his next sale to pick up an SFGZ-RH Nakiri for even cheaper than he already charges.

    I love mine, too. I don't use 'em a ton 'cause I just can't help feeling like they are shrinking before my very eyes.
