The Spyderco Murray Carter Itamae Nakiri knife is the ideal kitchen knife for push-cutting. The blade shape also allows the length to stay consistent even after years of sharpening. "Nakiri" means "vegetable cutter" in Japanese, and this knife will quickly become your go-to knife for many tasks in the kitchen because of its shape, comfort, and style.
The special CTS BD1N blade is a high-carbon, nitrogen-enriched steel that gives a superior blend of hardness, edge retention, and corrosion resistance. Ground incredibly thin and straight for an unparalleled cutting experience the blade is shaped in the signature "Carter Elbow", a distinct taper from the spine to point that gives the tip extra reinforcement.
Literally meaning "in front of the cutting board," Itamae is an extremely prestigious title reserved for highly skilled sushi chefs. Consistent with that elite status, the Murray Carter Collection's Itamae Series -- the highest tier in the Collection -- proudly features premium materials and uncompromising craftsmanship.
The wa style handle is built from Burl G-10 and has black G-10 ferrules for an stunning look. The octagonal handle ensures comfort and control.
"Created for those who demand the very best, the Itamae series faithfully captures the spirit of Murray Carter's coveted handmade kitchen knives and sets a new standard in high-performance kitchen cutlery."
