Artistically, this knife is a wonder. The cladding oxidizes just slowly enough it isn't a concern in use but quickly enough that it shows some nice patina even after a short cutting session. Combined with the gorgeous pattern welding the knife is aesthetically as striking and attractive as anything on the market.
The Nigara's profile and weight distribution leave it comfortable and confident in the hand. Unlike many high end knives that need a little care in use, the Nigara's fairly undemanding in terms of technique. The knife would benefit a lot from a thinner tip, and for that on a knife in this price range I have to take a star, but the edge geometry is otherwise quite nice and I still consider the knife a good performer. With a thinner tip I would unquestionably give it full marks.
