Thread: FS Carter high grade 240 gyuto

    FS Carter high grade 240 gyuto

    I have for sale a Carter gyuto I recently received in a trade, but I have too many 240's (seems to be a common ailment) and I'd like to add a few single bevels to my line up.
    I don't know too much about it other than:
    It is a great cutter!
    Cutting edge is 243mm approx
    White #1, clad in stainless
    Handle is black micarta/corian/ironwood ( i think )
    Never sharpened
    I'm not 100% what it's worth but I'll start at $625 + shipping. Which I think is fair but we'll see.[IMG][/IMG][IMG][/IMG][IMG][/IMG]

    If there are any questions please feel free to PM me
    Thanks for looking

    A little background on the knife, Huw.

    It's one of ten made by Murray Carter to commemorate the 50,000th knife sold by the webstore we cannot name. The handle is, as you have suggested, black micarta with a Corian spacer and ironwood ferrule. For the Carter aficionados among us, Murray labeled it as 7.9 sun (240 mm for the rest of us).

    Good luck with the sale. It shouldn't last long.

    Ohhhhh man, so tempting! Yet I feel if I went for it you guys will probably see it again-in the news as the murder weapon followed by the caption "local chef/restaurateur slain by pregnant wife after she discovered this beautiful Carter in the mail."
