Beautifully hand forged suminagashi damascus over aogami 1 carbon steel and thin convex hamaguri sharpened by Myojin Naohito. 

Nakagawa-san's knives are characterized by excellent heat control during forging and a very thorough heat treatment creating knives that have superb edge formation and edge life with good toughness. His carbon steels are usually easy to sharpen across most steel types. Nakagawa-san reputation as one of a few blacksmiths in Sakai to forge Ginsanko and VG10 stainless steels that results in excellent edge life and toughness is well earned.

Super fine grinding by Naohito-san. These have a solid feel with little overall flex but the edge is super thin and ‘nail-going’; it can be temporarily bent with pressure against a fingernail, an old style test for proper thinness on a fine ground blade.

This knife has a hard carbon steel core with iron cladding for added durability. The entire blade will develop a patina with use, especially with acidic foods. Special attention is needed to keep from rusting. Do not leave wet. Hand wash & dry, no dishwasher. Hardwood-end grain or softwood long grain cutting boards are preferred; avoid bamboo and plastic cutting boards. Rust can be removed with a light abrasive.
