    Murray Carter Forging a Japanese Knife

    You have to appreciate Murray who continues to share his skills and know how about knives. So awesome we can have someone explain things where we can all have some sort of understanding.

    Love this video. There are a couple things I'm wishy-washy of, but damn, his execution is incredible. I really like how thorough he was.

    Kind of insignificant things that don't matter really.

    He says molecules, but rather the structure of metal is crystalline. Also, I wonder about the grain-refinement during his cold forging - I'm curious to how the softer steel grains are worked compared to the hard steel.

    I'd also like to know how hes straightening a hardened blade; he makes it look effortless.

    You could argue he's the best out there. Of course, there are others, but he's up there, for sure.
    On a side note, I'm pumped because I finally have a way to store my Carter suji in a convenient location. The answer? A Wusthof drawer "block", like I think it was TK gave away.
    Man am I excited to use that beauty even more!
