The Masahi Damascus Nakiri Knife is an extraordinarily beautiful kitchen knife from a young blacksmith in Sanjo City, Niigata. Masashi’s knives are light, beautifully balanced, and a joy to use.

This knife has a Damascus SLD steel blade, a charred chestnut handle, and a resin ferrule. SLD steel from Hitachi benefits from a high carbon content that holds its edge well, is tough, easy to sharpen and maintain, and with a 12% chromium content is very nearly stainless. It’s laminated to an outer cladding of 15-layered Damascus stainless steel, creating a blade of breathtaking beauty.
