Meaning “vegetable cutter,” this knife’s unique rectangular shape and slightly upturned
edge make it the perfect tool for precisely push-cutting all kinds of vegetables. The
Nakiri’s blade shape also allows its length to remain consistent after years of sharpening.


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 blades of Itamae Series knives are expertly crafted from laminated
steel consisting of an Aogami Super Blue core clad between layers of
SUS410 stainless steel. This classic three-layer construction allows the
outer layers to protect and support the ultra-hard carbon-steel center
layer that forms the blade’s edge. Ground exceptionally thin and
straight for unparalleled cutting performance, the blades also feature
Murray Carter’s signature “Carter Elbow”—a distinctive taper from the
spine to the point that reinforces the blade’s tip.
The elite blades of the Itamae Series are paired with traditional
“wa-style” (octagonal) handles made from stunning burl G-10
(a durable fiberglass and epoxy laminate) and highlighted with
black G-10 ferrules. Created for those who demand the very best, the
Itamae Series faithfully captures the spirit of Murray Carter’s coveted
handmade knives and sets a new standard in high-performance
kitchen cutlery.
