Let me say that the outset that I am a Murray Carter fan. I own several of his knives and will probably buy more in the future. Though I have sharpened knives for about 60 years I have bought, studied and learned from Murray’s sharpening videos and YouTube posts. Learning from him has definitely improved my skills. I looked on his conversion to Nano Hone with confusion. It seemed to go against many things he taught. I just watched his newest video on his conversion to nano hone. Nothing he said in the video convinced me that his conversion was anything more than attempting to improve profits through paid testimonials for a commercial enterprise. It wasn’t the same as being told there was no Santa Claus ... but close. He also alluded to his upcoming enterprise of Murray Carter Signature Series Spyderco Kitchen Knives. Yikes ... I hope Murray realizes that what he is doing to his brand is much more dangerous than the most recent Food Network Chef is doing to their brand by branding a line of kitchen knives or pots and pans. Maybe he is following in Kramer’s footsteps. I don’t know but I know I won’t be changing my sharpening gear to nano hone any time soon and I doubt that any of the expert sharpeners here on KKF will either. I also doubt that many nano hone purchasers will be buying Murray’s $1000 plus knives any time soon. Time will tell.
