The Spyderco Murray Carter Minarai 8" Bunka Bocho Kitchen Knife is a highly refined kitchen knife. Designed by Murray Carter, this collection translates his coveted designs into affordable kitchen cutlery. The Minarai Series takes its name from minarai, literally meaning "to look and learn", quintissentilly Japanes way of describing the role of an apprentice. The economical format of this knife features a solid CTS-BD1N steel blade and a handle made of injection-molded polypropylene. This knife is a highly refined, remarkable fusion of traditional designs and modern materials, making a beautiful hybrid that is time-tested and high quality.
An all-purpose knife suitable for preparing meat, vegetables, and fish, the Bunka Bocho literally means "cultural knife" because of its role in making traditional Japanese cuisine in the home. Closely related to the Santoku ("three virtues") knife, the Bunka Bocho has a more acute and utilitarian point.
