Description: Designed by world-renowned knifemaker Murray Carter, 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. Minarai translates as “to look and learn” -- 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.
Bunka are general purpose knives used for a wide range of common kitchen tasks. This chef's knife can be used any time a gyuto or santoku might be called for. The triangular tip results in a detail oriented, yet stronger tip than the gyuto. This Bunka has less curve than a Western chef's knife, which means it contacts the cutting board along more of its length, so more food is cut per slice. The Spyderco Minarai Bunka has a gentle roll off the tip compared to the large roll of a Western style knife, so it needs to be lifted less, making cutting more efficient. The straight spine is perfect when moving chopped foods from one side of the cutting board to the other. From chopping to slicing, like santoku, bunka are a tremendous general purpose knife in the kitchen. Once you try the Spyderco Minarai Bunka, you'll wonder what you ever did without it.
Made by Spyderco in Japan.
