Form and Function.

The Carter features slide-lock technology, a first for us here at TJB. The slide-lock is secure, easy to understand and ambidextrous. It’s designed for use with one hand, and has been a staple mechanism of everyday carry knives for a long time.

Designed & Made Better

The Japanese-made VG-10 stainless steel blade has great edge-retention and corrosion resistance. VG-10 was designed to handle the abuse of the culinary world, but because of its amazing characteristics, it’s found a home in the world of everyday carry. The Carter is available with G10 scales or in natural Micarta; both are fully sculpted and feel amazing in hand. The opening style uses a symmetrical thumb-disc on top of the blade, making for easy, affirmative one-handed opening. The deep-carry pocket clip is our deepest ever. It’s easily reversible (using a Torx T6, not included). If a pocket clip isn’t your thing you can replace the clip with the included lanyard insert.

The Carter is available in regular and XL sizes, so it will fit hands and jobs of all sizes. If you are looking for something that is discreet and rides easily in any pocket all day, stick with the standard Carter. If you've got bigger hands, and need a full-size knife for hardcore work day in and day out, the Carter XL is for you.

    The Carter Lockable Blade

    A great knife with a single lockable blade. Very versatile and easy to use, and the knife is very to open and close.

    Very nice texture on the main body and orange is always a great colour.

    Awesome knife

    I received the knife a few days ago and my first impressions have been very positive. The knife feels good in the hand and opens and closes well. I like the pull tab safety release. The blade is also very sharp. 2 downsides I have noticed the belt clip is a little wiggly, would be nice if the belt clip was a bit stiffer but that wouldn't be a reason I wouldn't suggest it. I have also noticed a small glint on the blade already which kinda sucks I'm hoping the steel of the blade holds up but time will tell. Overall very impressed I would buy again and suggest it to friends. Just worried about the belt clip and the overall quality of the blade steel.

    Excellent knife

    This knife is beautiful with smooth, satisfying action, and feels great in both the hand and the pocket. The black/black is gorgeous, and the green thumb disk is a nice accent. Nice sharp blade and a high quality feel all around. Great addition to my EDC kit.

    Carter XL

    I received the Carter XL and have to say out of my 12 knives this is by far the smoothest opening and closing that I have in the collection. It is so fidgety and enjoy the open and close actions. The handles although are the G-10 feels super smooth and well-rounded there are no hot spots and I have nothing bad or negative to say even the thumb disk is something I didn't know about, but like it I do. I paid a lot for it, but wanted a more gentlemen's knife and this fits the bill. It comes with a lanyard attachment, but I wish the knife included a hole for a lanyard AND pocket clip. Overall, smooth, attractive and worth the purchase

    Gorgeous knife. Well made and great size for EDC

    I liked the knife out of the box but re-sharpened it after a week of use to really put a wicked edge on it. The deep pocket clip sometimes makes it harder than other knives to whip out in a second but it does mean that it won’t slip out if your pocket. Love the micarta and the entire build is so precise and smooth. I’m definitely in love and this knife has taken over EDC duties.
