Description
Returning to grad school this fall, otherwise this would not be for sale. Lightly used in a home kitchen. Handles is osage orange, white maple with micarta spacer, and is seamless to the touch. This makes a great travel knife, boat knife, glamping knife, wife knife or guest knife. It’s a very special piece that sharpens very easily, yet is easy to care for.

Disclosures
Knife has been sharpened many times, so the knife may want a little thinning, but I’ll leave this to your preferences. The flow on the board has been smoothed out so it's currently the best I own. Right now, food release is actually quite good, due a slight bit of convexity right behind the edge. It’s still a Carter, though, so it’s wicked thin and slides through veggies.

Dimensions
Heel to tip - 160mm
Height @ heel - 42mm (plenty of knuckle clearance, actually good for board work)
Width @ stamp (Carter’s measurement point) - 1.9mm

Included
- Knife
- Saya with pin (see last picture)
- Original box

Price
USD $425 (new knives from Carter this style and length are currently $550)

Price includes PP fees and USPS Priority shipping. CONUS shipping only.

Smith is Carter himself, you can tell from the stamp. Not Muteki.
It is thin and nimble for silverskin. May be a little tall, depending on what you like. But it sharpens really easily, so if you need to touch it up in the middle of butchery, it's not a huge pain. Thats one thing in its favor. Stainless steels just take so much deburring (and a couple blues I’ve used) to get going again, white steel is nicer for me.

yeah, I think the height is what I'm most concerned about. It's a similar height to a gyuto correct? Do you know what the intended purpose of the knife style is? Basically a shorter gyuto?

Intended purpose is a small home chef/boat knife. From what I recall, a funayuki is a fisherman's boat knife for breaking fish and other general tasks in a small space, a multi-purpose knife. The heel is high enough for some knuckle clearance, but it's not terribly tall. You can see the scale in the Sabatier picture.

If you like a little board clearance, it's nice, if you're looking for a true boning knife, it's likely too tall. But the tip is acute and thin and will get under silver skin.

Please don't lower the price again. I really don't need this knife!
