Kurosaki Gekko Nakiri (vegetable knife), 170 mm
Kurosaki Gekko Nakiri,
This Japanese Nakiri knife has a core of Japanese HAP40 Semi-stainless steel. This steel is seen as one of the best types of steel for kitchen knives. This double-sided sharpened knife is Sanmai forged with a stainless steel protective layer. HAP40 steel is one of the hardest types of steel and is therefore more sensitive to chipping and damage. Completely hand-forged by master blacksmith Yu Kurosaki, this knife is one of a kind. The blade is very thin and manually sharpened and has no thickenings, which makes sharpening very easy.
