Posted By: KevinLove 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.
