Carter 6.1 sun damascus nakiri

According to my research, it was forged in early 2007. Previous owners have been Ryan, Lee (LouisianaCook of KF) and most recently Anthony (antbanks of KF). According to the maker, the blade is constructed of S25C (1025) low carbon steel, Gokunan tetsu, and pure nickel sheet for the outside layers with a core of White steel #2 forge welded in the center.

Overall length is 260mm (10.25").

Weight is 327g.

The blade measures 6.1 sun (184mm or 7.25"). It is 53mm (2.1") high at the heel.

The spine is 2.7mm at the heel and 2.15mm at the tip.

Ironwood scales with brass bolster and pins, and a center mosiac pin said to have been made by Murray Carter himself.

That is great and nice and all, but you need a thread that is titled: "Knives Pensacola Tiger Has Sold." I have two, and I am sure others have some too ;)

I have been waiting for this thread to appear. Nice first post, but I want more!

I was thinking the same thing. I have one too as of a week or two ago.

Sorry man, just thought it was a funny observation. You've played with some great toys, and I can't wait to see what you currently have.

Damn Rick, I'll never get sick of this one! I personally want to see your most impressive Rodrigue, Harner, Thomas and Fowler. I need to try one of his blades sometime....
I'm looking forward to seeing how this progresses!

I apologize if this came off wrong. What I was suggesting was that I felt funny posting knives I no longer own, not that I objected to posting in this thread.

All comments are welcome.

No need to apologize and no offense taken on my part. My comment was simply an attempt at a joke and I did not mean to hijack the thread. Keep your pictures coming of your current stash.

I've only had it since last night, and I haven't had the chance to use it much. I'll let you know how I like it.

It wasn't all that sharp when I got it, so I put a better edge on it, and that was really easy. Love that White #2.

Cool, will be interesting to see what you think of it, I thought Carter used White #1 in most of his knives? Takes a great edge either way

I thought so, too, but Ryan described it as White #2 and that supposedly came right from Murray. I should write and ask.
