*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.
Murray deemed this knife a *SECOND* and discounted it because of a small, nearly imperceptible forge welding flaw. It will in no way affect the performance of this blade.
