It's been such an exciting month! To be honest, time has flown by so quickly it doesn't feel like this month is almost over! Read on to find out what has happened and what is about to happen at Carter Cutlery.
Some of our customers have expressed concern that I've been working too hard on other projects, such as our High Performance Tips and Kitchen Cuts Series, in addition to the high energy output that is required by my knife production. Contrary to these concerns that I am not focusing enough on my knife production, these exciting activities have given me new energy and new inspiration for creating high-performing kitchen and outdoor knives. The Kitchen Cuts Series is a celebration of the kitchen knife in use as a multi-functional tool. The High Performance Tips is a celebration of the Japanese ideology that a Master in one craft will humble himself when in the presence of another Master, and when challenged to do a task, he will do it to the utmost of his ability. Each one of the seven topics covered in High Performance Tips (combat handgun, precision rifle, BMW motorcycle off-roading, race car driving, helicopter flying, aerial platform and body-building) are activities I have pursued my whole life, give me great joy and satisfaction, and help me focus better on my job of making knives. The fact that knife sales allow me to pursue these other hobby activities
gives me even greater reverence for my craft and appreciation for my loyal patrons.
A little thank you isn't enough, so here is a BIG Thank You to all of our patrons for your support. As announced in last months newsletter, we've uploaded a number of High Grade and International Pro kitchen knives of various lengths and handle materials for your consideration. Just completed was a batch of limited chisel ground neck that will be making their way online soon, and shortly I will be completing a batch of tritium embedded neck knives to match the night sights in your favorite handgun! That's right! Never lose your knife in the dark again! Currently the profiles are forged and heat treated, but I'm trying to work out the best way to embed the tritium into the handle material.
Hey, that reminds me, if you haven't signed up for our newly revised "Free Knife Tips" on http://www.cartercutlery.com, do so now so that you don't miss out on some unbelievable offers that only tip subscribers are allowed to take advantage of.
