About the Maker

Carter, Murray
Carter, Murray

Murray Carter is a 17th generation Yoshimoto bladesmith and ABS 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 Oregon. Murray has forged and completed over 25,000 knives, all of which were faithfully crafted using the traditional techniques from Japan.

One of Murray Carter's Apprentices. I am married to my wonderful wife Lindsey of 10 years and we have 3 amazing boys together. I was a flight instructor from 2013-2021 with 2 years spent teaching in OR and 6 years spent teaching in WA. Little did I know back when we lived in Hillsboro, I worked right around the block from Murray’s Hillsboro shop and never knew it. Taylor and I have been great friends for many years and I learned about Murray in 2017 from Taylor’s father. He introduced us to a YouTube video of Murray demonstrating sharpness and I was very intrigued. I met Murray in 2018, who is also a pilot, and we connected over aviation and eventually I arranged to take a bladesmithing class. Through this experience I fell in love, not only with the art and expression of bladesmithing, but more specifically the art and expression of traditional Japanese bladesmithing. After my time with Murray, I started working toward being able to make knives on my own. This led me to the decision that I would keep flight instructing and make knives as a hobby with the hopes that it could lead into a full-time profession. I spent a year or so getting a shop set up in my garage and was even able to get my hands on an old, very rusty, home built 1950’s power hammer that I was able to restore. I spent several months restoring it to working condition and still have it in my garage to this day. I had my garage completely set up to do my own blade smithing when my wife and I learned that Murray was opening a second shop in Council, ID. We met with Murray and I was offered an apprenticeship at Carter Cutlery in August of 2021. I have been blade smithing at Carter Cutlery since September 2021.
