An utterly spectacular gyuto from Nigara Hamono's famous Blue #2 Rainbow Damascus line, this is a work of art made to the highest standards and paired with equally high quality ebony and black buffalo three spacer handle.
This knife is a collectors dream and it's not often we see stock of this line.
Please note that this is a new version of the knife and that Nigara Hamono no longer put their name or logo on the blade itself on their higher end knives as they now prefer the pattern of these knives to be completely uninterrupted by any markings.

Our aim is to measure and photograph our products as accurately as possible but due to many items being handmade, finished or using natural materials, there can be minor variance in measurements and things such as blade or wood finishes can vary. We will always endeavour to provide the most accurate measurements, photos and descriptions of our products.
Some measurements such as HRC are provided by manufacturers and should therefore be used as a guide.
