Michio Ishikawa is a 4th generation blacksmith working for Nakaniida Traditional Blades, which is located in the Miyagi Prefecture. It has been in operation for over 350 years. Ishikawa-san makes this knife from Shirogami #2 carbon steel with a soft iron cladding. The Nakaniida process involves 28 steps and is notable in that the blade is hardened 3 times. This entire process is carried out by Mr. Ishikawa himself. Unfortunately, when Ishikawa-san retires, the process will retire with him as he has no apprentice. So no more Nakaniidas, unless someone quickly takes up the mantle.

The gyuto is designed primarily for general purpose cutting. This one is unusual since it's a single-sided blade so only right handed users can comfortably use it. The blade is matched to a lovely custom octagonal handle made from dyed burl wood with an octagonal shape.
