We'll try to keep this newsletter brief and to the point since there are a lot of projects that we have in production:
For the month of July Murray will be travelling in Japan on business and because of this the shop has been working to finishing all possible knives before Murray's departure. That being said, we have 50 new neck knives currently in various stages of completion. These knives will be completed intermittently over the period of June/July, so be sure to subscribe to our New Product alerts to be notified once they're available. As a side project, Murray will soon begin forging a special Damascus billet that will incorporate the rich logging history of Oregon with Murray's Japanese-style of knifemaking. During an Open House demonstration, Murray forged a similar knife and was blown away by the performance. Below is a picture of this prototype knife:
Speaking of new designs, have you purchased your copy of Murray's second book, 101 Knife Designs? Purchase it directly from Carter Cutlery and have it personally signed by the author!
In keeping with what you've come to expect from Carter Cutlery, we raised the bar once more by attempting something never filmed before:
