Nat Stein - “Rainy Bog” Nakiri

A Japanese style slicing knife, this 7.5” nakiri is a light and versatile tool for any size meal prep.
The handle on this knife is made from ~3800 year old bog oak. Trapped in an oxygen free environment the wood does not rot, but slowly mineralizes and acquires a deep natural dark color. It is contrasted here with copper pins and accent plate. 
The blade is ground with a subtle “s grind” that reduces weight and helps food release from the knife by creating a small air pocket during cutting.
The blade is from 26C3 high carbon steel and etched with a ridged texture reminiscent of rainfall on still water.
Wavy maple case included.
