Spyderco K17PBK Minarai™ Series Gyuto - CTS-BD1N Blade - Black Polypropylene Handle
The Minarai™ Series is Spyderco's latest offering in their foray into the quality kitchen knife market.
Literally “cow blade,” the Gyuto is the Japanese equivalent of the Western chef’s knife. Its versatile design is suitable for slicing, carving, chopping, and detailed food preparation chore
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.
