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