Misuzu SKS93 Nakiri
165mm. We're selling these off as seconds because the blade grinder made some very minor, tiny scratches when he went to engrave the knife. They're perfectly fine to use.
Misuzu knives are made in a family-run blacksmith shop situated in the town of Miki. They produce several different styles of knives with one thing in common: value for money! We have just added a new line to our selection that reinforces this attribute.
SKS93 is a carbon alloy steel that is similar to AISI O2 tool steel; however, there is no vanadium in the composition of the alloy. It is tough steel with good abrasion resistance. The alloy is hardened to 60-61 Rockwell. The inner core, or hagane, of SKS93 is covered with a layer of soft stainless steel which adds to the blade's strength and helps with ease of maintenance.
The knife is light for a nakiri
of this length and has a nice grind and finish. It is a standard style nakiri with a flat profile and blunt rounded tip. The blade height is a conservative 45mm, which gives it a more gyuto
-like feel than a taller nakiri which feels more cleaver
-like. The edge is well made and features a symmetrical 50/50 grind. The handle is a simple D-shaped ho wood construction with a black plastic ferrule.
Please Note: These knives often come with small cosmetic scratches which happen during stamp engraving. They're minor and won't affect the use of the knives.
