I'm done. That's it. Pffft!

After 21 months on the waiting list, I finally got my custom Carter Deba (and 2 paring knives) to round out my kitchen set. I should blame Stefan for starting me down this path, since he sold me the first one (smaller Funayuki) in 2007.

All are SFGZ White #1 steel, except the parers, which are Blue-Super. Thin is IN!

A whole set of Carters, wow! 21 months must have felt like a decade.

What did you have in mind when you ordered two parers so close in size to one another? They look like razor sharp little scalpels...very cool.

Back about the time I first started learning about Japanese knives, Warren had just gotten his custom set of IP damascus knives from Murray. I was smitten! And the "Carter Craze" began on the Forums...

To see what all the buzz was about, I bought the smaller Funayuki from Stefan, who described the SFGZ series as Carter's best value line (I agree).
I added the Wabocho a few months later, then almost immediately found the larger Funayuki/Gyuto.
I wasn't really planning on going completely Carter until I bought the Nakiri.

In March of 2010 I placed a custom order with Murray for a Yanagi; the next day I found one offered for sale, so I changed the order to the Deba.
I began as #44 on the waiting list.

About a year ago, I noticed a paring knife for sale on Murray's web site, but when I went to purchase it, it had already been sold. So I added one (actually 2) to my order. The larger one replaces a Dojo parer I've had for a few years. The smaller one I actually wanted even smaller (skinnier profile top-to-bottom) for coring smaller peppers (serranos, ajis), but it was hard to talk Murray into making it with that thin of a profile...

In honor of my first great knife-lust, I should call this set "Warren Lite"...

I also noted that in my previous posts, the term "Wabocho" seems to have been censored into "*******".

Did Wabocho become a dirty word on the Kitchen Knife Forums? What's that all about?!?

The Rebel in me is gonna make me say:
