Box Elder Mosaic Nakiri 145mm

With an almost surreal, low-contrast, mosaic damascus blade and integral bolster, this one-of-a-kind nakiri by bladesmith Niko Nicolaides will do so much more than chop vegetables. It will light up the room. Thin and sharp behind the edge, lightweight, fast and balanced in the hand, and easy on the eyes, the 145mm / 5.7" blade flows beautifully through the bolster and into a gorgeous box elder handle faceted in wa style.

The Story

At his one-man studio in Detroit, Michigan, Niko Nicolaides creates custom chef knives with a focus on unique, house-made damascus pattern steel and hand-forged blades. A self-taught, full-time bladesmith, Niko worked previously as a CNC programmer and operator before leaving to hone his skills on the decidedly analog, artisan end of the object-production spectrum. A desire to make great looking, superbly functioning culinary tools that will last a lifetime is why he does it.
