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.

    Smooth and Sharp

    Out of the box it’s a smooth looking and feeling knife. The edge is sharpened to perfection, no need to fine tune! Opening the knife is a joy and smooth, as well as, closing the knife. It can easily and comfortably be opened and closed with one hand. With the clip, you can remove it from your pocket, open the knife, cut what needs cutting, close the knife, and return it to your pocket while holding something (the needs cutting) with the other hand! If you’re considering this knife, just stop and order it!!!

    Great blade

    Okay, I was replacing my old favorite ZT titanium and didn't want to spend that much again. I did my research and found this cool knife. I knew the deployment was different as was the locking mechanism. These differences will take a while to get used to. They are not as smooth. The lock is solid but awkward to use. Closing is definitely a two hand operation. The blade is sharp and well made. Edge is holding well. One last point. The belt clip is very stiff and hard to slip over jeans top. That could be less spring and maybe 3/4" longer.

    Great EDC

    I like this knife a lot. It’s light, looks good and is well made. I enjoy carrying it and it’s also very sharp as a good knife should be. I was the go to guy at Christmas opening everyone’s gift boxes!
