The superb quality and finishing of this knife show the mastery of Satoshi-san's knife making skills and it's one you'll look forward to using every time.

First Impressions

The silver 3 as you might expect from a blacksmith of Satoshi san's skill has a nicely finished and consistent edge running through the collection and while it's impressive right away, we feel there's also a bit of potential to hone it further and take it up a notch with minimal effort.


The migaki finish across these blades is very refined and has a subtle beauty and consistency that is easy to appreciate and enjoy.

Paired with a classic octagonal teak handle, we'd call this one understated but if you're looking for beauty and quality finish - it's very much there.

In Hand

One thing that's immediately obvious when this knife is in hand is that the quality and skill shown in the migaki finish and the consistent grind also extends to the spine and heel of the knife where they've been ever so slightly rounded which makes a big difference in comfort when using a pinch grip in particular.

It shows a quality and attention to detail that extends to all aspects of the knife. 


The silver 3 core is comparable to many carbon steels for sharpness and edge retention and will keep an impressive edge sharpness.

Ease of Care

Normal care instructions apply as always - rinse and dry after use and no dishwashers but other than that you've got a nice low maintenance stainless knife thanks to the silver 3 core and stainless cladding. Easy!

Our Verdict

We're delighted to be able to stock Satoshi san's knives, they're undoubtedly a considered purchase at a competitive price point but it's a knife that's exceptionally well made and finished but also has some untapped potential if you give it a quick hone too. 

The Silver 3 is a great steel for durability and ease of care and in Satoshi Nakagawa, you're buying a knife from a supremely skilled blacksmith that's going to last you many years.
