A classic nakiri shape combining damascus steel and a hammered finish. 

 

SHAPE: Nakiri. A traditional shape used for cutting vegetables.

STEEL: VG-10 stainless steel with damascus finish. VG-10 is a popular stainless steel, favoured by Japanese knife makers for its sharpness and edge retention. VG-10 is commonly used for damascus blades.

FINISH: Tsuchime - a traditional hand hammered finish. This effect not only looks great but also reduces contact with the blade, helping to ensure that whatever you are slicing doesn't stick.  

HANDLE: Hinoki (Japanese cyprus) wood handle with ebony ferrule. 

LENGTH: 160mm

MAKER: Yamawaki, Sakai City, Japan

BEST FOR: Vegetables, vegetables, vegetables.

 

SAUNDERS SAYS: "Not tried a nakiri shape? You are missing out. Not a meat cleaver but a much thinner specimen intended for vegetables. You will find one of these in almost every Japanese home and there is a good reason why. It also has the added advantage of being the easiest knife shape to sharpen."

 

The spec:

BLADE LENGTH: 160mm

OVERALL LENGTH: 322mm

BLADE HEIGHT: 46mm

THICKNESS AT HEEL: 2.3mm

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