Enjin SRK8 Nakiri 165mm. Our latest blacksmith find, Kyohei Shindo, works and resides in Tosa Japan. He's a young blacksmith with a bright future ahead of him.

The first knives in this new line are made with SRK8 steel which is an alloy that boasts some similarities to Hitachi Shirogami #2. In the case of SRK8, chrome and nickel are added for extra toughness and resilience. The steel is heat-treated to HRC 63+. It should therefore hold a good edge and be easy to sharpen.

These are really good looking knives featuring a well-done kurouchi finish on the upper blade road that fades to a nice matte sand-blasted lower portion. The core SRK8 steel shows really well against this backdrop. A great looking burnt oak wood handle with an urushi finish makes a perfect match for the blade.

    uot;Kevin","datePublished": "March 16, 2022","reviewBody": "Love this nakiri knife. It's really cool that it comes from a small shop and is not mass produced. Additionally it's just a fantastic knife. The knife actually arrived not very sharp so if you're not a knife sharpener might recommend having CKTG to sharpen it. Just a little while on a Shapton 1000 and mine was incredibly sharp. Easy to sharpen and keeps an edge way longer than stainless steel like my Miyabi Vg10. I would guess this SRK8 steel is close to blue #2. The knife will rust if you don't take care of it at all but honestly it can actually take some beating like not washing off for 10 minutes after slicing veg. My knife hasn't gotten any rust in the few months I've owned it and has a very nice patina now. I wasn't sure how reactive it would be since it has chrome and nickel added but was actually happy that it was still reactive but not too reactive if that makes sense - a nice happy medium. The knife is very light especially the handle but it's comfortable and really pretty to look at it. Very nice rustic vibes. Whole heartedly recommend.

    Posted By: Andrew Justus

    I recently purchased the Enjin SRK8 Nakiri 165mm. It’s a great knife and the craftsmanship is very impressive. However, the blade had a chip in it right out of the box. I like the knife and decided to keep it and just repair the chip myself. Other than the chip, the knife is beautiful and feels perfect in my hand.
