I have some knives coming from Bladesmith Murray Carter. They are made from either white steel with one of them made from "Blue Super" steel.

Are these sharpened in any special way or still in normal progression? I'm assuming these are blended steel formulations. His work making custom knives is amazing and I don't want to "experiment" on these as one new to knife sharpening.

I'll post some pics as soon as they arrive.

That's super exciting! He's an phenomenal knife maker and they should be a treat to work with. I can make some recommendations once you get them in and post some pictures.

I'm very interested in this too, Clay. I have several Murray Carter knives, shown here:


If that provides you enough for any recommendations, I'd love to hear them. Also happy to take some close-up pictures.

Thanks,
Dan

Hey Clay,

Started taking a few this evening and quickly realized I suck at taking pictures of blades! Going to have to work on that. The photos you take of yours are beauties and really show of the qualities of the blade.

Here are a few I took of Murray's Original pattern neck knife, the right, uppermost knife in the overall collection photo. Hoping that will help size the other blades. I'm happy to take other close-ups of the other blades, but it might take a few days to happen. Other than length, let me know what other blade specs you might need.

Thanks, ElPasoTom! If you have one in your order, you're going to love it! I have to keep myself from ordering another, though he just came out with what he calls is Perfect profile and I might just give in for that one.

Just realized I sort of hijacked your thread here and I apologize for that. Definitely interested in any opinions on sharpening these steels.

Dan,

No problem... I'm new here myself. Glad to see another fan of Carter Cutlery. I'll only have two of his pieces though.

5.7 sun Stainless Fukugozai Wabocho in Blue Super steel

Neck knife 182 Oyako hammer finish white steel, ironwood handle

So lets figure out how to keep em sharp
