Miscellaneous Seconds Masakage Shimo Nakiri

A tall blade shows off even more of this lightweight nakiri's wonderful shimo "frost" pattern and the thin blade will make short work of your vegetables.

*This Shimo Nakiri is brand new but the handle isn't as well sealed as we would normally like to see. It is also missing the newspaper wrapping*
