Overview

Mastersmith Murray Carter cites this work as "the world's first pine charcoal heated, water quenched, carbon steel/stainless laminate bladed folding knife". Murray has developed his forging process through the incorporation of techniques from both the east and west. His traditional Eastern forging produces one of the finest sharpest blades that you will own. Murray earned a feature article and provided his own essay in Ken Warner's 20th Annual Edition book, "Knives 2000" which is very interesting and informative reading. Serial Numbered on the tang.

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.
