Spyderco K16PBK Minarai™ Series Funayuki - CTS-BD1N Blade - Black Polypropylene Handle
The Minarai™ Series is Spyderco's latest offering in their foray into the quality kitchen knife market.
The Funayuki, literally translated as “ship going,” is a versatile pattern that's extremely popular with fishermen. It excels at chopping, draw-cutting, and other general kitchen tasks.
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. Literally 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-molded polypropylene handles. A remarkable fusion of time-tested traditional designs and state-of-the-art modern materials.
