How is everyone enjoying Murray's new Knife Care and Maintenance Tips? We've already received an overwhelmingly positive response from subscribers that have found these new tips informative, so if you haven't had the opportunity to read them through , do it! Murray spent two months completely re-writing these Knife Care and Maintenance tips with new information, new diagrams, and new videos not presented before. We think the combination of visual stimulii and written information will give you the best possible understanding of what each tip conveys. In addition to new information, Murray also included a series of incredible offers that are so generous you'll be blown away. We would recommend taking advantage of these offers as soon as you can, otherwise you may miss out on that perfect knife (or three!)!
Blade Show Sale
It's that time of the year again! It's time for the annual Blade Show at the Cobb County Galleria in Atlanta, Georgia June 8th and we expect it will be a great show for those in attendance! Murray attended this show annually for 15 years, but unfortunately, due to a scheduling conflict will not be able to attend this year. We know that this will be a big disappointment for many of you, so in an effort to make it up to you, we've decided to hold a great sale! Since normally we would incur significant expenses attending the show (table fees, hotel, transportation, shipping) we would like to pass those savings onto you by offering a discount of 25% on current inventory or goods and services AND FREE SHIPPING on all orders in the US. Sale begins JUNE 7th @ 9:00AM (PST) and ends June 11th @ 12:00AM (PST). To receive this discount please enter the coupon code BLADE12 at checkout and select WILL PICK UP to receive your free shipping.
Traditional Japanese Bladesmithing School
Earlier in the month of May we had three students from around the world join us for our 500 Level Six-day Intensive Bladesmithing Course. It was a great class for everyone and the knives produced were absolutely amazing! In fact, after seeing the knives that these students completed it's hard to believe that they've only produced a handful of knives for themselves before. We truly believe that they have the capability to become professional knifemakers in due time. We're always sad to see our students leave, but we're excited for what the future holds for these upcoming knifemakers. You can watch these student's personal testimonies on our newest YouTube video, here.

This will be an alcohol-free, family-friendly event, so bring your sons or daughters to take part in this event!

In other news, Murray's helicopter training is going great, he only has five more hours to complete before he's able to fly solo. It will be exciting to see how he will incorporate this into future Carter Cutlery endeavours.
