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.

Ground and finished by Myojin Naohito who became known to us here through his outstanding grinds and finishes on the Konosuke Fujiyama FM knives. We have been consistently impressed with how nicely these fine blades cut and at the quality of his finish work. It is exciting to get more knives finished by this young but very talented sharpener and now blacksmith as Naohito-san has begun to forge some of his own knives

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.
