Sakai Takayuki Moonlit Waves Nakiri
One of our favourite knives in this range. The size of the blade shows off that patterning perfectly. Vegetables almost slice themselves out of fear when in the presence of this one.
Featuring a quality handle; solid and weighty with a full tang which is unusual for a Japanese knife but that is why this one is so popular, it brings together the quality and beauty of Japanese steel with a more familiar Western handle. The blade is sharp as you'd expect and simply wonderful to look at.
Certainly a pleasure to use or just stare at.
