Spyderco K17PBK Minarai™ Series Nakiri - CTS-BD1N Blade - Black Polypropylene Handle
The Minarai™ Series is Spyderco's latest offering in their foray into the quality kitchen knife market.
Meaning "vegetable cutter," the Nakiri's unique rectangular shape and slightly upturned edge make it the perfect tool for precisely push-cutting all kinds of vegetables. The knife's blade shape also allows its length to remain consistent after years of sharpening.
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.
