I like that they are offering knives in this series at a variety of price points, and BD1N is very tempting.

Those..... will be a must have. Been saving for a 270mm HAP40 chef knife, but I may order one of these sooner. Well done Spyderco.

I'm a line cook who likes to use Miyabi knives with VG10 and MC63 (SuperGold2) and MAC knives. This is like exactly the kind of chef knives I want to throw into my routine.

I bought these from Murray Carter years ago while he was still working and building knives in Japan:

Murray Carter is a legend in my book. I'm really excited about this collaboration. These are must-buys for me.

Were these mentioned being introduced with BD1N as well? AFAIK, I've only seen Aogami Super as the steel being used. Nonetheless, BD1N is a fine steel for kitchen work!

If this is any indicator on pricing... just found this link to the 7 1/4" Nakiri...

Note the G-12 handles instead of G-10 :eek: :p. They also seem to have the collector number 113V models for the SG2 Delica and Endura if anyone is interested. A bit rich for my blood at the moment :cool:

The collaboration knives should be aogami super.
The golden-made budget kitchen knives should be bd1n

Thanks for the clarification... Upon further examination of the knives at Country Knives; they feature a number of models of the Murray collab that you can add to your cart and proceed to checkout with. Prices are quite high and don't signify if they are listed at MAP or not, but most of their listings seem like they're selling at full MSRP. Looks like most of these will be coming in at around the mid $100s after MAP takes affect :cool:

In the SpyderByte newsletter last week they talk about the Cater Cutlery collaboration being made in three different types:
"Itamae (Chef) Series" in Super Blue
"Wakiita (Journeyman) Series" in CTS BD1N
"Minarai (Apprentice) Series" in CTS BD1N

Each has a different handle material and price point.

According to the most recent Spyderco Byte, the MAP for the new kitchen knives will be the same as the MSRP:

"Spyderco is very excited to announce the launch of “Spyderco Culinary Products”—a dedicated sales channel that will focus exclusively on kitchen cutlery and related accessories. Because of the specialized nature of many of the products in this channel—like the Murray Carter Collection—we have decided that it requires a different sales program than our other products. This program will only include select dealers, will not include two-step distribution, and will not allow sales through third-party web sites. The MAP for this program will also be the full MSRP of the products."

Unless I'm missing something...

Oh man! I didn't see that... that's unfortunate. I was expecting current MAP pricing which would bring the high-end line into a much more affordable range.

The ref web site has MSRP of $335 for a 7.25 inch Nakiri,,,, which is the same pricing for retail MAP?
These appear to be not forged,,, but laminated steel from a rolling mill bonding process.
Very mass production type of common construction.

No thank you,,,, I can purchase two comparable super blue steel knives with forged blades for this price.

Regards,
FK

Yeah, if MAP=MSRP pricing on this run; that's a hard pass from me. $400 for the 10" gyuto in burled G-10; I can't see the justification. Maybe Murray himself crafted each blade? Dunno :confused:. Was quite excited about these knives too :(. Cheers for the info Meat man. I'm in agreeance with FK; there are many other knives that would be worth the price of admission over these for much less monies without having to sacrifice anything that these knives could outclass at near double the price :cool:. I think this one has fallen to collaboration namesake rather than what is actually being brought to the table

Is this the March byte featuring the Respect? This information was not in the one I received?
