Hi Everyone,
So a while ago i started up this thread: which showed a slight error when M. Carter got my order out the door. Long story short, he fixed the error and the knife has arrived. Pics to follow :D

Knife came in the mail, next to Howard, my pet ginger stem (found him growing in the wrong cupboard)


Lovely profile on that IP funayuki

Trying to do this shot without a macro lens



The handle has excellent finish, a neat little mosaic pin and red spacers of some sort.


It really is quite a nice western handle

So all in all, this was what I got in the end for my troubles. The original knife that shipped generously given by Carter to me for the mix up, and the replacement IP Funayuki that was what I ordered during his big shift sale at 40% off.



All in all a really great buy for less than $500 (for both), even without considering the free knife. And these knives are not half bad. In fact, they are DAM good. :happy1::happy1::happy1:

Yeah, I would say the second one came out a little nicer than the first one.

Is the front edge of the bolster a hard sharp edge? It looks very crisp from the photos. I like the pattern on the bolster material though.
