Boxelder Honyaki Nakiri 135mm

The elegant and refined appearance can be deceiving; built for the business of daily kitchen work, this W2 carbon nakiri with stunning hamon by Dmitriy Popov of DP Custom Knives is sure to turn heads on and off of the cutting board. With a balance point just in front of the Arizona dessert ironwood handle bolster, the 135mm / 5.3" blade moves effortlessly in the hand and features a subtle, precise S-grind geometry, convex just above the extremely thin, sharp edge for excellent food release. Beautifully figured spalted boxelder burl completes the gently tapered handle, faceted and flat on top and the sides and rounded along the bottom.
