At over 60mm in height, this 165mm nakiri from the Kujira line of knives stands tall and with the craftsmanship that has gone into it, it also stands out. The Kujira line is handmade by Ken Kageura, a 25th generation blacksmith with over 50 years of knife making experience. The core steel is Aogami #2, a carbon steel renowned for taking excellent edges and holding them for a very long time. The core is wrapped in one of the most unique and attractive claddings on the market. The cladding is forged from scrap steel. The resulting knife has a soft copper hue with an understated Damascus pattern. As the knife is not stainless, the knife will patina with normal use. Because the laminations in the cladding differ in composition the contrast will increase between the layers making the knife even more vibrant and dynamic over time. The handle is rosewood with a black pakka wood ferrule. The tang is all stainless steel so water intrusion and corrosion under the handle will not shorten the life of the handle or knife.
