The perfect knife for making precise cuts on vegetables.
A very pleasant experience with every cut.
The nakiri knife from the Wusaki Damas V10 series is as beautiful as it is efficient. In this knife you can find all the advantages of using a high quality kitchen knife that is ergonomic, durable, and has a great design. The originality and elegance of its eye-catching look can make any cook fall in love at first sight.
Having a Japanese VG10 steel core and being polished by hand until it acquires a sharp edge, the blade of this nakiri knife remains sharp 2 to 3 times longer than a knife made with European steel. The V-shaped manual sharpening that is done on all our DAMAS VG10 knives - with the use of a grinding band - ensures perfect cuts since the very first usage!
This nakiri knife has a blade made of Japanese steel with a hardness level of 60 HRC and VG10 steel core with 1% carbon content. This type of high quality steel is much harder than the one found in the best Western kitchen knives. Therefore, thanks to its excellent characteristics and its remarkable durability, we've chosen to use this steel on all the knives from the Damas VG10 series.
The blade of this nakiri knife has 67 layers of damask steel (unique to each single knife), and a hammered surface on the top part of the blade. The handle, which matches perfectly with the beauty of the blade, is made of noble olive wood characterised for its veinings, its astonishing design, and a comfortable grip. Finally, the Japanese character engraved at the bottom of the handle provides that final touch of originality that gives your knife a truly original style.
Wusaki knives are made in a small factory located in the north of Canton; the capital city of the Guangdong province in Western China. This province is historically known for its know-how in the production of steel knives. The good relations between France and China allowed us to find a serious partner with a human-size structure like ours. The expertise of Wusaki is entirely governed by the French manufacturing standards established by the professionals in the field. We are proud to have succeeded in the creation of a reliable work tool with a superb design and at a great price for our customers.
Wash by hand and dry with a soft cloth. Avoid to wet the handle as much as possible, even when washing the knife. Once in a while, you can wipe the handle with a cloth slightly soaked in olive oil to protect the wood.
