About Carter Cutlery
Carter Cutlery is the premier and only place online to buy beautifully handcrafted knives by Murray Carter, a 17th generation Yoshimoto bladesmith. Murray’s incredible story and his path to becoming a bladesmith is detailed on his website and worth the read, especially if you appreciate the stunning craftsmanship of hand forged knives. His journey began with his passion for blades and how to create and craft the finest of knives. He had the fortune to meet a 16th generation Bladesmith, Sensei Yasuyuki Sakemoto in Japan where he completed a 6 year apprenticeship and then continued to work in Japan for 12 more years. Over the course of Murray's 33 year career he has pounded close to 29,000 knives. Over the years he has continued to build his business here in the United States and now has numerous bladesmiths that have completed his extensive 3 month Apprenticeship Program. Their knives are all available on the Carter Cutlery website.
The History of the Carter Cutlery Website
We have had the privilege of working with Murray since 2007. Our mission was to create a website that featured his stunning knives and also make it easy for you to purchase and own your very own Muteki knife. And over the years the website has expanded and gotten better and better, and our business relationship has grown to something we are very proud of. We wanted to feature the incredible history of Murray and showcase how stunning the knives are all while making it easy to use.
