Hand forged 165mm nakiri with stainless clad VG1 stainless steel blade with tsuchime hammer marks and D shaped ho and horn handle made in Takefu Japan.

VG1 is similar to VG10 in carbon and chromium content (around 1% and 15% each respectively) but lacks the vanadium and cobalt of VG10 which makes VG1 easier to sharpen but with slightly less edge life. It is an excellent quality stainless that has a good balance of characteristics, great for those who want to maintain an edge easily that requires low maintenance. These are hardened to 61/62, and care must be taken to avoid chips from mistreatment.
