    Definitley in love with doing this style of knife. This one's up for grabs on my website! Price is 875USD.
    If you get from me here, it's free shipping exclusively for you Bladeforums knife nerds! Reach me here or by email at [email protected]

    Probably one of my favorite blade styles to use and make. The Nakiri was originally designed for Vegetable processing, but its versatility makes it an amazing all-around kitchen tool.

    Ground to a sharp "Zero Bevel", with my modern take on the "Kurochi" hammer texture.

    With a light Sea-green tint on the clear epoxy resin, it's as if you're seeing the figure underwater.
