Nakiri's are traditionally used for chopping vegetables, and because of its very thin grind, this knife cuts like a dream. The rustic look is achieved by using historic wrought iron on the blade. For uncompromised cutting performance 125sc high carbon steel is used for the cutting edge in a san-mai construction.
This Nakiri has quite a thin full flat grind with a bit of forge scale left on the upper part. The spine and choil are rounded.
The nice lean octagonal wa handle is made out of wengé and african blackwood, with a copper spacer and a ferrule of homemade copper and brass mokume gane.
