ello everybody,

Already a month in from our recent move to our new location and business has been going strong! We encourage those who can make it to stop by and check out our new shop. While we still have the rest of the year to get through, January was a very exciting and prosperous month with many new knives that have been added to our inventory, which continues to grow.


Open House

Here at Carter Cutlery we provide the highest quality hand forged knives you can own. But we don't stop there! As a locally owned business we know how important it is to stay connected to the community as well as providing excellent customer service for all of your cutlery needs. Starting on Thursday, February 7th from 5 p.m.-6:30 p.m. (TOMORROW!!), here at our new location, we will be offering our very first open house of the year! Come see how our business functions and watch Murray perform his bladesmithing magic. This will be a very exciting experience for those who can make it. View in person, a showcase of our products and the chance to observe master bladesmith, Murray Carter. No RSVP necessary.
