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 from Carter Cutlery. "I became a Muteki bladesmith early 2018 after stumbling upon Murray’s interview with Tim Ferriss on the Tim Ferriss Show. Little did I know the shop was a mile from where I was listening. I came to visit that day and the rest is history. I aim to keep a balance between kitchen and outdoor knives and enjoy making all types of blades and the unique challenges that arise with each."
