THIS ITEM IS SOLD OUT, BUT PLEASE CONTACT ME IF YOU'RE INTERESTED IN SOMETHING SIMILAR! This Nakiri (vegetable knife) is hand forged in a "san mai" construction, where I sandwiched wrought iron salvaged from an old battleship chain on the outer layer, then a thin layer of pure nickel and a piece of a turn of the century 1095 high carbon saw mill blade steel for the core, which provides the cutting edge.  I set this blade into a lovely piece of lignum vitae or the tree of life, and held it all together with a hand forged mokume gane bolester made from 25 layers of nickel silver and copper.  The cutting edge is 4.75" with a double sided convex grind. Handle is 4.75" with a shape that transitions from oval in the front to soft rectangle in the back. This blade is a delight to use and will only grow more beautiful with age as the blade patinas.
