117mm NAKIRI #143
A classic Japanese style vegetable cleaver. The Nakiri is a traditional blade shape that developed into the Santoku after WW2 when a wider range of foods became available in Japan.
Low carbon cladding - laminated in-house
Aogami (blue paper) no.2 carbon steel core for a 'san-mai' (three layer) blade. Aogami 2 is a really great cutlery steel alloyed with around 1.5% added tungsten, enabling extra hardness and toughness. We do like the contrast we get between the cladding and core steel with this combination of materials.
