Takeda Sasanoha NAS 240 mm (Free Shipping)

Product Description

A few details: The rosewood octagon handle is friendly to both right and left-handers. It has a black pakka wood collar. The blade is also suitable for right and left-handers - beveled 50/50. These nakiri are part of Takeda's NAS series - carbon blades that have been clad with Aogami Super Steel coating. It's a stainless coating around a carbon core making the face of the blades resistant to oxidation and easier to care for. You can see the layers in the profile view (see photos) and it's part of what makes each knife unique. As a finishing detail Takeda uses a bit of epoxy glue at the bolster to prevent water from getting down into the handle. It's a nice touch that helps protect the knife over the course of its life. 

Care: Wipe the knife’s blade with a clean cloth or wash it gently after each use avoiding harsh detergents or scrubbers. Never use in a dish washer. Dry the blade soon after washing; the knife will develop a patina over time but you want to avoid rust. The wood handle is durable—that said we recommend hand washing your knife drying it and storing it somewhere it doesn't come into contact with other objects or utensils such as a knife strip. Or when completely dry you can keep it in the box it comes in. We suggest having the knife professionally sharpened or using a sharpening stone

The Takeda Hamono nakiri ships in a gift-worthy box with the blade wrapped in Japanese paper.
