R Murphy knives

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

I learned a couple things today:


1) R Murphy, who makes my favorite oyster knife, a wellfleet style with rosewood handle, also makes carbon steel knives around 59 HRC.  Suspected to be 1095.  Their other carbon steel offerings (hunting knives) are 1095.  I call this new new stock as opposed to new old stock.


For anyone shopping in the $100 range and likes the old school American style carbon chefs knife, with no annoying bolster mind you, definitely worth a look!


2) Their factory is only a few towns over from me in Ayer, MA


maybe they're hiring blacksmithing apprentices...

Relatively soft carbons can be a lot of fun. I maintain mine at 8k and they are amongst my best performers.
