Amboyna Burl Nakiri 175mm

A nakiri forged in W2 by James Oatley, wildly thin at the edge, S-grind geometry, and forge-finished flats with etched and polished bevels to reveal a wavy hamon. A truly exceptional knife from St. Leonards, Australia, James of Oatley Knives has a knack for creating tools that seem to speak another language. This vegetable chopper in gorgeous amboyna burl with an ebony bolster is no exception. Even the steel saya pin has stacked ebony and amboyna burl to match the knife and amboyna burl saya.
