The Process: Crafting a High End Kitchen Knife from Scratch

Murray Carter is the 17th generation Yoshimoto bladesmith. He was born and raised in Halifax, Nova Scotia, but and traveled to Japan when he was eighteen, inspired by a karate competition. There, he encountered the Japanese bladesmith tradition, and he stayed in Japan for half his life and apprenticed under a Japanese bladesmith for six years.
