Shiro Kamo fashions this series of knives from SG2 (R2) stainless tool steel, clad with a damascus style layering of a different stainless alloy. The jigane (outer layer) is etched to reveal a lovely semi-matte pattern. Some fine kanji script is chiseled into the blade to enhance the handsome aesthetic.

SG2 is powdered steel that exhibits really good strength, excellent wear resistance, and the ability to take a very sharp edge. It's made by Takefu Specialty Steels.

The Shiro Kamo nakiri featured here is a really fine knife. While the knife is quite light, it is still a stiff and responsive blade, but certainly not a laser. The blade thickness is fairly stout at the neck but thins down to a fine edge and tip. The profile is almost dead flat with just a hint of curvature to the belly. The tip is rounded to allow for a slight rocking action. The overall fit and finish are as good as any in its price range (and better than most). The same goes for the out of the box edge sharpness.

If you seek a blade with character or “soul,” a knife that can handle a multitude of ingredients, and you want to experience the latest in easy to maintain metallurgy, then the Shiro Kamo Nakiri would be a perfect choice.

      Unique and exquisite knife, May 5, 2020
    Posted By: Peter John - verified customer

    I got this as a slightly lower-maintenance alternative to a carbon steel nakiri that I have (and still love). This knife is exquisite. I love the damascus pattern. Great fit and finish. Feels great in the hand, with a comfortable and visually appealing handle. The bog oak may be my favorite feature. It's amazing to hold and use something so ancient. This is a wonderful hybrid of traditional craftsmanship and modern metallurgy.
