The Spyderco Murray Carter Wakiita 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.
The special CTS BD1N blade is a high-carbon, nitrogen-enriched steel that gives a superior blend of hardness, edge retention, and corrosion resistance.
In Japan, Wakiita means "near the cutting board" and is often used to describe senior apprentices working with high-ranked chefs, similar to a sous chef in a Western kitchen. The Wakiita Nakiri (translated as "vegetable cutter") is the perfect knife for your kitchen and is part of the Wakiita tier of the Spyderco Murray Carter Collection.
The wa style octagonal handle is painstakingly crafted from solid black G-10, a durable laminate of fiberglass and epoxy. The polished handle delivers both comfort and control.
"A remarkable fusion of time-tested traditional designs and state-of-the-art modern materials, the Wakiita Series accurately translates Murray Carter’s prized custom designs into high-performance cutlery that is sure to please even the most discriminating cooking enthusiasts."
