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.
Meaning “vegetable cutter,” this knife’s unique rectangular shape and slightly upturned edge make it the perfect tool for precisely push-cutting all kinds of vegetables. The Nakiri’s blade shape also allows its length to remain consistent after years of sharpening.
