Wakiita (pronounced wah-kee-ee-tah) literally means “near the cutting board” and is a term used to refer to senior apprentices skilled enough to assist high-ranking chefs. Equivalent to sous chefs or journeyman chefs in Western kitchens, they are accomplished culinary professionals well on their way to becoming expert chefs. As the second tier of Spyderco’s Murray Carter Collection, the Wakiita Series captures the spirit of the journeyman chef by expressing Carter’s highly refined designs with solid stainless steel blades. The blades of Wakiita Series knives are precision ground from CTS-BD1N —a high-carbon, nitrogen-enriched stainless steel that provides a superior balance of hardness, edge holding, and corrosion resistance. They are paired with traditional wa-style (octagonal) handles painstakingly crafted from solid black G-10. A remarkable fusion of time-tested traditional patterns and state-of-the-art modern materials, the Wakiita Series accurately translates Murray Carter’s prized custom knives into high-performance cutlery ideal for every kitchen.
