This knife is forged by an apprentice of Murray Carter as part of their bladesmithing education using the same techniques and materials as Murray himself. Apprentice Series knives do not have an identifiable stamp. The metallurgy, sharpness, and overall quality of each knife from our Apprentice Series is inspected and approved by Murray Carter. Shop with confidence.

*NOTE: Because all of Carter Cutlery blades have a forged distal taper (thicker in the middle, more thin towards the tip), the blade thickness given is dependent on what part of the blade is measured. On Kitchen knives we measure the blade thickness at or around the “Carter” stamp. On Neck knives and Outdoor knives we measure just in front of handle.
