The Murray Carter Collection is made for those looking for the best kitchen knife. Rely on the expertise of coveted knife maker Murray Carter: the world's leading expert in Japanese kitchen knives. The Murray Carter Collection has turned his legendary craftsmanship into a top-quality collection of kitchen knives.
Murray Carter, born in Halifax, Canada, fell in love with Japanese culture as a teenager. At 18 years of age he visited Japan and met Sensei Yasuyuki Sakemoto, a 16th generation knife maker whose ancestry stemmed from some of the most respected sword makers. Carter and Sensei Sakemoto's remarkable relationship led to a 6-year internship and another twelve years of work experience as a knife maker in Japan. Today Carter is considered to be one of the world's leading expert in the field of Japanese kitchen knives.
As a productive knife maker who has made over 25.000 knives, Carter soon realized that he could never meet the insatiable worldwide demand for his handmade knives. To make his elite designs available for a wider audience he decided to work with another legendary presence in the knife industry, a company which also has deep ties to the Japan's most important knife tools: Spyderco.
Spyderco took the meticulous craftsmanship of Carter's handmade designs and turned it into a breath-taking collection of production knives known as the Murray Carter Collection. This amazing knife collection, produced in Japan according to Spyderco's strict quality demands, highlights Carter's very refined expressions of five traditional Japanese kitchen knife patterns.
