New as of 2-1-2018 we've added a nice walnut handle to this popular line of knives. These budget priced knives use AS steel as their core alloy.
While they might not have the fit and finish of other higher priced knives, these Karaku blades make a great starting point in your journey into the world of Japanese cutlery. The Karaku 165mm Nakiri would also be a great choice for someone looking to discover the versatility and functionality of this popular blade design.
The knife oozes character and after a quick trip to your favorite stones it will surprise you with it’s performance and ability to take and maintain a super fine edge. Bargain price does not have to equate to bargain performance. The Karaku Nakiri is a great example of this truism.
