Spyderco Minarai Funayuki

Spyderco Minarai Funayuki

Designed by world-renowned knifemaker Murray Carter, official heir to a 420-year-old Japanese bladesmithing lineage, Spyderco’s Murray Carter Collection faithfully translates Carter’s coveted handcrafted designs into affordable factory-made kitchen cutlery.

The newest additions to this proud family of knives are his Minarai Series, meaning “to look and learn,” minarai is a quintessentially Japanese way of describing the role of an apprentice.

In that spirit, the Minarai Series expresses five of Carter’s highly refined designs in an economical format featuring solid CTS® BD1N stainless steel blades and injection-moulded polypropylene handles.

Translated as “ship going,” this versatile pattern was extremely popular with fishermen. It excels at chopping, draw-cutting, and other general kitchen tasks.
