Characterized by its straight blade edge and squared tips, this profile allows for cutting all the way to the board without the need for a horizontal pull or push, enabling quick and precise chopping. The main use for the nakiri is chopping and preparing vegetables that can’t be tackled with the sanoku knife. This version is 18cm which is a medium sized blade. The Eastern olive wood range comes gift boxed with a wooden 'Saya' that offers the perfect protection for your knife, protecting yourself and others from its supremely sharp edge. The blade has a 67 layers of VG-10 Damascus steel, the highest quality steel with a high carbon content that gives it exceptional toughness. The exquisite craftmanship in these knives can be seen in the elegant layered damascus pattern on the blade. The blade is finished with an olive wood handle which strikes a balance between opulence and hard wearing-durability.
