What makes this a second?
The knife arrived from the manufacturer with some resin spots on the blade which we believe were caused during handle fitting. These have been scrubbed off but it has meant the initial polish finish has been scuffed.
This scuffing and marking would eventually happen naturally with use in the kitchen and cleaning etc so apart from this, the knife is in brand new and unused condition and as a second is a great bargain for a keen cook looking for a beautiful nakiri.
The Nakiri is a veg knife that will make easy work of all the prep jobs you can throw at it!

What you getThe knife comes in a red box with gold lettering. Inside there's a stepped cardboard interior with a sharpening instructions leaflet in Japanese. The blade is covered in a brown paper sheath. Given the one-off nature of seconds the packaging may vary in type and condition but we will include detail for each knife and of course as with all our knives we'll include the normal plasters and care tips card for you.
