Hand forged aogami 2 with dark nashiji finished iron cladding and pakka wood ferrule maple handle. Ground thin behind the edge for smooth cutting.
Hand forged knives vary slightly in weights and measurements, expect small imperfections in finish or small amounts of wavyness in blade or roughness in finish.
This is a reactive carbon steel. It should be mentioned that extra care is required, as the knife is not stainless and should be dried immediately after use. It will develop a dark patina with usage, but any orange rust should be removed with a light abrasive.
