Murray Carter Hand Forged Collection

" No Compromise, Soulful, White #1 Performance Blades"

View Murray's remarkable story above

Halifax born "Karate Kid Carter" visited Japan intent on advancing his martial art. A chance encounter with a shop owner and 16th generation Yoshimoto bladesmith became a life changing event for young Carter. Passionate and no stranger to the dedication to Karate, Murray began a 6 year apprenticeship in the 1000 year tradition of Yoshimoto bladesmithing. After many more years of honing his craft in Japan forge welding thousands of knives Murray was awarded the title of 17th generation Yoshimoto bladesmith. Today Murray continues to evolve his art, forging exquisite, soulful, performance knives in his shop in Oregon.

A Carter kitchen knife is one of the most sought after knives in the world. Why?

Superior metallurgy, cutting performance, very limited availability and the fact that Murray crafts and sharpens each and every blade himself. Every knife starts with the purest steel in the world, Hitachi white #1.forge welded in carbon rich pine charcoal, annealed in straw ashes, quenched, heat treated, tempered by fire, sandblasted and cold forged to realize the full potential of this incredible Japanese steel. Simply stated a white number 1 edge forged, sharpened and honed by Murray Carter is an edge no production knife can equal and no other steels can quite achieve.

It is my honor to offer you a rare opportunity to own a remarkable knife crafted by Canadian born 17th generation Yoshimoto bladesmith Murray Carter. CW
