Dear Knife Enthusiasts!
A lot of great things are happening for Carter Cutlery right now. Numerous long-term goals are coming to fruition and we're very proud
to be able to bring this exciting news to you. Read on...
annual Japan Tour was a wonderful success. Murray and his group received
unprecedented access to the Tokyo Tsukiji Fish Market, seeing sights that
foreigners or tourists rarely see. To make the tour even more amazing, after
visiting the market, Murray and his guests were given the opportunity to tour
some of Japan's oldest waterstone quarries with an 18th
Generation Quarry Master. After receiving an incredible tour, Murray and his
guests were given tools and actually had the opportunity to quarry, tool, and
finish their own natural waterstones. While not every stone was satisfactory,
and truth be told, some of them simply crumbled under the master's inspection,
the experience was one that will last forever. All of this and more will be
compiled into a continuation of our Japan video series, Carter Cutlery Japan Tour 2011: Tsukiji Fish Market and Natural Waterstones - Pursuit of Perfection. We're very
excited to be able to provide this exclusive video footage to you! Please subscribe to our YouTube channel to receive instant updates, and while you're
there, we hope that you enjoy the numerous sharpening instruction tutorials,
extreme shaving trials, and cutting competition comedies!
One project that we're incredibly excited to bring to you the Part 1, Paring Knives, the first part in our newest video
series, Kitchen Cuts. In this video series Murray has traveled around to some
of the nation's top restaurants to receive personal instruction from
world-class chefs on how to properly use not only our knives, but all knives.
We've compiled a comprehensive list of everyday tasks, techniques, and styles that
at-home cooks and culinary students must keep in their repertoire in order to
succeed in the culinary world!
Cutlery is also very proud to announce the publication of Murray's first book, Bladesmithing with Murray Carter, which will be arriving to bookshelves at the
end of the month. Murray has been writing this book over the last several years; compiling together the most important aspects of bladesmithing into a
comprehensive, easy to read and understand form for everyone from amateurs to even experts. This book is available for purchase on the Carter Cutlery website - the only location where you can receive a signed copy of Bladesmithing with Murray Carter!

"Dear Mr Carter,
I would like to thank you for posting your many
informative videos and your knife sharpening tips. The information you
have given me through these things is greatly appreciated. I have spent
my life in the woods practicing bushcraft and behind every good woodsman
there is a good knife. I have spent many years sharpening knives and at
22 I have become quite proficient at it. I had already owned a
1000-6000 japanese water stone and in the search to better my technique I
tried yours. Without a doubt it is the fastest and most effective
system to date. Your knives are beautiful and they show your experience
and creativity perfectly. I look forward to the day when I have the
money to purchase one of your neck knives and be able to depend on it to
do the tasks i ask of it."
