This product is unavailable

A striking, silvery nickel lightning bolt runs through two layers of high carbon tool steel 1.2842. This high contrast, performance ground piece of steel extends from a beautiful, ergonomic, tapered rokaku hanmaru grip.

The blade features a relatively long 185mm Nakiri profile. A long flat edge with a slight curve before the nose. The profile feels fantastic as a chopper and perfect for push cutting. A stiff spine with consistent thickness gives the knife stability. The 1.2842 German tool steel is akin to O2, and it takes a fantastic edge.

Getting back to the handle, stabilised plane, which has a unique pattern consisting of hair black and beige grain lines. Tastefully paired with carbon fibre and G10 to complete a very nice piece from Martin Huber.

Tips on sharpening you knives

Reactive Steels: Reactive steels like Aogami Super, Apex Ultra or one of the many premium reactive German and Swedish steels are susceptible to rust if not properly cared for. In this case we advise that you keep the knife dry between uses and when storing the knife for longer periods wiping the knife blade with Tsubaki oil or another food safe oil is a wise choice. This will not stop a patina forming on the blade, but it will stop rust. A patina can be a beautiful personal feature on your knife and helps to stop rust forming. So, dry your knife regularly between uses, store in a dry place and apply some Tsubaki oil from time to time when storing for long periods. 

A reference guide to steel types

Handle Care: If you have a knife with a non-stabilised wooden handle, you can apply Tsubaki oil or another food safe oil to your handle from time to time. Food safe wax can be applied to both stabilised and no-stabilised wooden handles. Never apply hot wax or oil as you risk warping or damaging the handle.
