I Forge Iron

nakiri inspired japanese kitchen knife


Recommended Posts

Hello All;



Fresh from the forge; a customer-spec nakiri / usuba inspired knife. 

Specs: 160 mm cutting edge; thickness of cutting edge before sharpening is 0.2 mm. full flat ground; rounded back.3 mm thick 35 mm wide. 

Steel : 1.2442, I love this stuff. HRC 65. 

Materials: Reindeer guard; gray leather spacer, kingswood handle. The handle is far longer than I would have made it, about 50 mm; but the customer wanted it really long and flat at the end to crush garlic. This is also why kingwood was selected; no food poisoning danger. 

What do you guys think ? I recon it can cut up an apple or two once sharpened :D
