I just returned from the Blade Show West and bought my first custom knife. It just happens to be the Murray Carter Camp Knife pictured in the original post by Blues. I am so excited and can't wait to go camping soon.
I am planning on starting a collection of Mr. Carter's knives as I found many that I wanted to buy.
I found Mr. Carter to be a very pleasent person to talk with. He took the time not only to explain the intricacies of the knife but also a short lesson on sharpening.
I think the neck knife I also saw posted on this site is my next buy.
I met Murray Carter this last Friday at Blade Show West. He was very nice, a true gentleman. We had a nice conversation and he answered all my questions, with no pressure or snobbery. I regret that a new toy wasn't in the budget, but I know that I will one day own one (probably more) of his fine knives. I second Blues' opinion of that knife. It incredibly good in my hand. Almost put it on the credit card. Being fiscally responsible sucks!
Nobody, I have not received mine yet, but I want to hear from those who have used theirs too. I have found my kitchen and kiridashi knives to be fairly tough and with durable edges, but have a camp knife (6") and a neck knife coming.
