Real beauties. Stainless steel wrapped around razor sharp Blue Carbon blades (Aogami #2) with a nashi (Japanese pear) finish. The Bubinga handle (African hardwood) is shaped in a Western style giving a familiar feel, but with a lovely Japanese balance. The stainless 'nashi' coating is irregular, and some knives can appear heavily pitted. This is not a fault, but shows the hand of the maker, and prevents food from sticking to the blade.

Get these if you want the sharpest steel coupled with stainless protection, and a nice familiar handle.

  • Bubinga handles
  • Aogami #2 Blue Paper Steel
  • Stainless Steel nashi jigane cladding
  • Double bevelled




Niwaki Tip: Beware! Many a man has been lost to the seductive mysteries of the nashi finsh.
