White #1 Range from Daisuke Nishida

White#1 steel that has been forged completely from scratch brings a raw beauty to these knives. If you're looking for your first carbon steel knife and want that patina then these are the knives for you!

Made by Daisuke Nishida

Based in Kumamoto, 42 year old Nishida San became a disciple to another blacksmith when he was 19. After 9 years training, in 2006, he went his own way and opened his own workshop. He works with White #1 steel in the traditional hand-made way.

Daisuke Nishida

These knives are pure carbon steel so if you're looking for a stainless option then maybe these aren't for you, but maybe you're looking for your first carbon steel knife at a price that won't break the bank, maybe you want to try developing a patina for the first time. Either way you won't go far wrong with these, these are made solely by Nishida San using traditional methods so you're really buying a work of art.

The handles are oval cherrywood with a black plastic ferrule and HRC is 62:63.
