For 600 years and counting, Sakai, Japan has perfected the art of traditional sword forging and craftsmanship. Made in Sakai, the Wa Nakiri is a vegetable knife that follows in that tradition. This sharpest of blades is made up of 45 layers of hand-hammered Damascus steel with a VG10 steel core—one of the best steels for kitchen knives due to edge retention and stain resistance. Plus, the octagonal handle ensures easy grip, even when wet. The result is a stunning work of craftsmanship that’s a gift-in-waiting for the Iron Chef of the family.
6.3” blade. Made by hand in Japan.
