Overview

The Carter Elbow is a design detail inspired by the Japanese wabocho. Murray modified it and now claims it as his own unique contribution to the industry. The radius of the Carter Elbow allows more steel to remain at the point which is traditionally a weaker place in the blade and has a tendency to get damaged first. Compared to a straight line down to the point, the Carter Elbow creates a more reinforced tip.

About the Maker

Carter, Murray
Carter, Murray

Murray Carter is a 17th generation Yoshimoto bladesmith and certified Master Bladesmith. Growing up in Eastern Canada, Murray enjoyed outdoor activities which gave him plenty of chances to use a diversity of blades. His disappointment with the blades he was exposed to gave him the desire to make something better. Shortly after graduating from high school, he traveled to Japan where his interest in blades led him to a Japanese bladesmith's shop. In no time at all, Murray was engaged in an apprenticeship under the tutelage of a 16th generation Yoshimoto bladesmith. Upon completing his apprenticeship, he was asked to take the position of number seventeen in the Sakemoto family tradition of Yoshimoto Bladesmithing. After eighteen years of bladesmithing in Japan, Murray and his family moved to Vernonia, Oregon where he currently resides.
