Somehow i figured this reply would be coming. But you never know. Maybe someone needs to thin the heard.... I have hope !
I actually did get one back inte the early days of KF. It now seems like the bargain of a lifetime. Maybe, just maybe competing would be the early wa-handles i got from the later Meistro.... :doublethumbsup:
I only have one muteki honesuki, I discovered Carter just too late to realize what a bargain they were. I use it more as a sturdy little petty when I cut parmesan cheese or things like that. They are definitely worth looking for.
They were sheet cut/stamped from a san mai laminate made to his spec if i recall correctly. You can see the white steel at the spine. Handles were pretty much SFGZ riveted. Mine has held up very nicely.
I am slightly embarrased to say i think i paid $42 for my funy when i got it (secondhand).
I too think he shoul bring them back.
