Yoshihiro AUS10 69-Layer Damascus Stainless Steel Wa-Nakiri with Magnolia Handle


This product is unavailable

Crafted by Yamawaki Hamono in Sakai City, Osaka, Japan, this double-beveled, authentic Japanese-style Nakiri is made from 69 layers of folded Damascus stainless steel and a core steel AUS10.

It is an exceptionally versatile essential for both professional and home use. AUS10, with a higher carbon content than traditional stainless steel, undergoes high-hardness heat treatment, allowing the blade to achieve excellent hardness at HRC 62-63. The result is a sharp edge with outstanding toughness and superior edge retention.

The blade undergoes a mirror-polishing treatment, showcasing not only the exquisite Damascus folded pattern but also ensuring a smoother cutting experience during use.

The handle is handcrafted, featuring an octagonal shape that provides a comfortable and secure grip.

Handle: Magnolia octagonal handle with buffalo ferrule
This product comes with a Magnolia wood Saya.

How to Maintain Stainless Steel Knives

After use, simply wipe the knives dry to remove any moisture. Do not use a dishwasher to clean your knives. If you plan not to use the knives for an extended period, it's advisable to apply a thin layer of protective oil.

Ensure you use the knives correctly, as they are designed for specific functions such as slicing, chopping, or handling frozen foods. Avoid using them beyond their intended purpose, as this can lead to damage.
