Lacewood & Ebony Nakiri 175mm

Superb s-grind geometry gives this 70mm tall blade in hanyaki forged W2 carbon steel a remarkable, balanced feel in the hand. But this knife is not just a precisely made and finely tuned cutting tool. It's a James Oatley creation, which means that only the most distinguished and elegant finish will suffice, from the textured flats to the silky hamon line, from the gorgeous lacewood and ebony to the custom saya made by James, who described this particular high-performance knife as one of his best to date.
