Nishida San is one of Japan’s up and coming blacksmiths. He has been blacksmithing for 12 years and started making hunting knives. Unusually for Japan he undertakes all of the knife making processes himself including forge welding the steel together to make a layered blade.

 

SHAPE: Gyuto. Japan's answer to the chef's knife with a thinner profile. 

STEEL: Shirogami (white paper) 1 steel. This steel has the highest amount of carbon out of the paper steels so will get crazy sharp easily. It is a very reactive steel so best kept dry although the kurouchi finish will help inhibit rust. These blades are also clad with soft iron which is also susceptible to rust.

FINISH: Damascus or Suminigashi. This finish is created by repeatedly folding and heating the steel (opposed to stacking, welding, and compressing) which Nishida san does this in house via forge welding.

HANDLE: Western stabilised wood died green  

LENGTH: 210mm in length  

MAKER: Daisuke Nishida - Minamiseki, Japan

BEST FOR: Those wanting medium to heavy weight knives that are very traditionally forged

 

SAUNDERS SAYS: "These Knives are really beautiful and at only 35 years old I think Nishida san is someone to watch in the future."

 

These knives are hand-forged so there may be slight variations in measurements and finishes.
