Misuzu SKS93 Nakiri
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 which really reinforces this attribute.
SKS93 is a carbon alloy steel which is similar to AISI O2 tool steel, however there is no vanadium in the composition of the alloy. It is a 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 strength of the blade and helps with ease of maintenance.
The knife is very light for a Nakiri of this length and has a nice grind and finish. It is a standard style nakiri
which features a very 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.
