This lovely nakiri is made from ginsan or ginsanko silver 3 stainless steel. G3 is an all-around nice steel and it takes a wonderful edge. The inner core of ginsan is covered in a softer stainless steel for strength and lightness. This is a great looking knife featuring sanding marks on the blade flat that are longitudinal along the blade.

There is a slight taper on the spine and a well-made blade face and road in contrasting polished and satin finishes. The blade is ground quite thin at the edge, almost laser like. There is a good flat spot on the edge that transforms into a gradual belly towards the rounded tip. So while nakiris are mainly push cutters this can be a rocker if you use the tip. It has a symmetrical 50/50 edge for use by both left- and right-handed users.

Handmade in Takefu Village by third generation blacksmith Takeshi Saji, this great looking nakiri brings together an elegant aesthetic, keen edge taking, and the convenience of full stainless steel construction. A tasteful, well-crafted octagonal rosewood handle with black pakka wood ferrule completes the ensemble.
