Yu Kurosaki Nakiri 165mm - R2 Shizuku EditionKurosaki Knives
The handle on this Shizuku Nakiri is an ambidextrous, octagonal Wa (Japanese style) handle made out of fine grain Cherrywood and finished with a black Pakkawood ferule. We find the Wa handles to be comfortable and have an ergonomic feel to them.
Kurosaki knives generally have exceptional fit and finish and this Nakiri is no ecpetion. The handle is center fitted and sealed (no gaps) and the spine and Choil (heel) has a nice smooth grind to it. The balance point of the is a little forward of the heel and is perfect for a nimble pinch grip.
The bespoke blade has a slight curve to it making it great for both slicing and chopping action. The overall weight is quite low and the Kurosaki Nakiri feels agile and maneuverable in the hand. Overall a nice piece and craftsmanship and a really great Nakiri.
