Hand forged aogami 2 with dark nashiji finished iron cladding and pakka wood ferrule maple handle. Ground thin behind the edge for smooth vegetable work in a classic rustic style.
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.
