In the process I came across the world-renowned Murray Carter, a 17th-generation Yoshimoto Bladesmith, American Bladesmith Society Certified Master Bladesmith, and custom knife maker who studied in Japan for 20 years.
I am a certified graduate of Murray’s Traditional Japanese Bladesmithing school, the only such school in North America. Since its commencement, the school remains the most exclusive instruction of its kind in the world.
Carter is currently the only Master Bladesmith in the U.S. making custom kitchen knives.
I’ve been personally mentored and certified by Murray, and I correspond with him frequently.
