Carter Cutlery knives rival the best Japanese high performance knives. 

Murray Carter is an ABS master bladesmith and the 17th generation Yoshimoto bladesmith.  His knifes are forged with strict adherence to Japanese blacksmithing techniques, allowing him to manipulate steel to its highest potential. His apprentices, the Muteki Bladesmiths, apply the same techniques under Murray's tutelage.

We have travelled to Japan with Murray Carter and also learned knife-making from him at his forge in Oregon, and can personally attest to his talent and status as one of the world's elite makers.

Japanese chef knives are brittle and are designed for cutting soft tissue foods. High Carbon steel chef knives can rust if not kept dry.
