One facet of the knife industry that has surprised me is the absolute approach-ability of so many of the biggest names. Murray Carter stands out even among his peers in taking time to answer questions from his customers and fans (and the editor of a certain knife blog who is counted in both of the categories above). He participated in our “5 from the Grinder” series during a visit at BLADE this year, and I bought my first Carter Cutlery knife – a Funayuki/Gyoto. We appreciate greatly the access he has given.
Carter-san has started what should be a running Q&A session on his YouTube Channel, and is inviting his followers to submit questions. For those of you who might be interested in participating, here is the open invitation.
