reetings everyone!...
Welcome to another monthly update from Carter Cutlery! We've had a wonderful winter with exciting new YouTube video's, media coverage, and more! Keep reading for exciting news from your source of high performance cutlery!
                      YouTube Videos
 Connecting with our customers is a top priority for us here at Carter Cutlery and one essential way of doing so is by providing free streaming videos of Murray demonstrating his famous bladesmithing skills. Our new media producer, Aaron Gallegos, has been hard at work getting weekly video's to our YouTube subscribers and viewers. Everything from forging Kuro-uchi Kitchen Knives, to shaving with a spoon can be found on our YouTube channel. Make sure to "Subscribe" to be updated weekly with new video links delivered right to your inbox!

Shop News
Our new location (Google Map) has become quite popular over the last few months, and one contributing factor is our recent coverage by local newspapers. The Oregonian and the Hillsboro Argus have recently published a story which features Murray and his business. 
     "Carter spent 18 years in Japan training in the art of forging blades. Now in his Hillsboro shop, he makes high-quality kitchen knives sold across the world." writes author Fenit Nirappil from The Oregonian. The full story and attached video can be found here.
In addition to publicity in our local paper Murray and Carter Cutlery have been the subject of local television news! Murray, his business, and our open house events will be the spot light soon on evening news! For those of you in the Portland Metro area, stay tuned as we'll let you know when our segment will air.
Carter Cutlery Job Opportunity
After our new opening at the beginning of the year, we've noticed that the demand for our high performance cutlery has been steadily increasing! To match the demand for our products, Murray has decided to add another full time position specifically dedicated to knife grinding and blade grinding. Applicants may apply by responding to our Craigslist Ad. No deadline has been set.
NEW High Grade, Custom Handle Kitchen Knives

Murray and the gang have all been steadily hard at work forging, grinding, polishing and sharpening new High Grade Custom Kitchen Knives! Remember, all of our knives are 100% handmade right here in Hillsboro, Oregon!
