This gorgeous Nakiri brings functional art to your kitchen. This Hezhen design uses 67 individual layers of Damascus steel to provide a sharp cutting edge that is resistant to rust and corrosion.
The 10Cr15CoMoV steel core provides the primary cutting edge. This steel alloy provides the best basis for a reliable, sturdy edge. When paired with a vacuum heat treatment, this high carbon steel will retain its edge over long periods of use without the need for sharpening.
The reason high carbon steel is needed for this process is because carbon allows for better flexibility in addition to harder edges. The steel core has a Rockwell hardness of 60-62 which is very hard compared to other heat treatments.
This hardness range is just under the threshold for a knife edge to be too brittle. If the steel was any harder, it would run the risk of breaking under use. The 60-62 range is the sharpest you can go without having to worry about edge brittleness or the edge rolling over.
The steel core is reinforced on either side with 33 layers of 316/316 stainless steel. Stainless steel brings a better level of corrosion resistance and resistance to rust than most carbon steels.
Using this type of steel as an outer shell allows for the strengths of the different steels to be maximized. The steel core focusing on cutting and edge retention with the stainless steel prevents rust and other environmental damage to the knife.
The 15 degree edge angle allows for a good cutting capacity, but isn’t too fine that it can be easily dulled. This helps the knife stay usable for longer between sharpening sessions.
A Sycamore handle compliments the Damascus pattern while allowing for an ergonomic grip. This cuts down on long term fatigue from using the knife. A brass rivet using a mosaic pattern is featured on the base of the handle.
The 7 inch cleaver style blade, usually referred to as a Nakiri, allows you to process large sets of vegetables and is primarily used for dicing, chopping, and slicing. This design is great for those who have a lot of salads or similar dishes to make. This style also works with meat, especially those dishes that need thinner slices.
