Nakiri chef's knife
This custom designed Nakiri, has a blade from 80Cr V2 (1080+), the blade is 3mm thick on the spine, 175mm long with a full flat grind, the overall length of the knife is a tad over 300mm. The blade was coated with clay and differentially hardened to produce a quite vivid hamon. There's one nickel silver spacer with a black resin bolster which has foil cast into it. The handle is my own hybrid wood of stabilised oak burr cast in white Alumilite resin. Everything is held in place with one mosaic pin and the whole package weighs in at 194g.
- The blade is differentially heat treated 80crV2 high carbon tool steel
- The handle is made from my own stabilised and resin cast oak burr
