Spyderco Minarai Petty

Spyderco Minarai Petty

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.

A remarkable fusion of time-tested traditional designs and state-of-the-art modern materials. From the French petit meaning “small,” this knife is the equivalent of a Western paring knife and is ideal for peeling and slicing fruits and vegetables, making garnishes, and other detailed food-preparation tasks.
