Russia, With Devotion|
very first Russian customer, Andrey Kozlovskiy, has been one of our
most devoted customers, purchasing a number of kitchen and outdoor
knives. At first we were at a loss on how to safely ship knives to
Russia, but after some trial and error, we got it figured out. Andrey
has purchased some of the finest blades I have created to date, and I
hope they will feel right at home among the classic architecture in
Andrey’s hometown of St. Petersburg.

have received the knives already. These knives are amazing, and the IP
Gyuto is excellent! (Look at the photo -- it is me, and I am very
happy!) My wife
is happy twice -- first, because I am happy, and
second, because I made a gift to her, the small neck knife. Thank you
very much! I
have received kitchen knives from Japan, and I have had no problem, but
your IP Gyuto is the best!

Learning how to
hand-sharpen your cutlery
is a liberating endeavor. With a modest investment of money and time,
the student of sharpening can easily master the skill within a few
years. The net result will be a satisfaction that surpasses
the freedom the home baker has in baking fresh, healthy bread with that
of a consumer whose only choice comes from the bread section at the
supermarket. The home baker is never limited by the market
started hand-loading my own
shooting ammunition, I discovered that I could create cartridges vastly
superior to what was on the shelves of gun stores. I also could take a
cartridge like a .44 Remington Magnum and either safely load it up to a
high power level, or load it down to the power of a much lesser

freedom and control that is unavailable by any other means.
how much money and time do you need to invest? Much less than most
other pursuits. For no more than $175, you can get a
complete set of stones and instructional DVD’s from Carter
Cutlery. If you spend just 20 minutes a month
practicing your sharpening skills, within a few years you will be on
your way to mastery!

someone causing damage that I could not fix.
friend hit my
Wabocho against a stainless steel pan causing a chip in the edge, I was
easily able to repair and sharpen my knife back to its original
condition. It is great to be able to share these knives knowing that I
can keep them "scary sharp."
