Fred Carter

Fred Carter and I go back over 26 years. Back in 1980 I visited his shop to increase the quality of my knives. He noticed  I was admiring some of his patterns, and he told me something I will never forget. He said “A.T., you can copy anything in my shop, except my name” You can read the full story by going here.

Fred doesn't make using knives these days. Most of his knives start at $1,000 of dollars. A few years ago, he started making knives that started out as cast 440C. He still hand grinds and finishes the blade and the knife. All he did was take the grunt work out of making these knives. The handle material is Dymondwood®. Dymondwood® is made from 1/16 hardwood veneers that are vacuum impregnated with dye and phenolic resin. The blade length is 3 1/16" and overall it's 7 3/16".
