African Blackwood Nakiri 155mm

A nakiri from Jelle Hazenberg, hand-forged from san mai steel with a White No.2 core and 22-layer cladding. Measuring 52mm high at the choil and refined from a 2.6mm blade width at the spine to a thin, sharp and hard edge heat treated to HRC 63-64, this is a blade made for endless vegetable prep day in and day out. As nice as every handle Jelle carves, the African Blackwood Blackwood is dark, and beautiful grain can be seen with a closer look. An environmentally friendly ivory substitute, Elforyn, is used for the bolster.
