NAKIRI KITCHEN KNIFE

Hand Forged
Remade in England
Using Upcycled Materials

THE BEGINNING

The steel used for this Nakiri kitchen knife is some 60-100 years old, originally being made in Sheffield, world renownd for exceptional quality steel. 

It's life has already been lived - it's a discarded vintage engineers file. Used to slowly cut and machine all sorts of metal into shape.

By fire I can forge this material into something entire new that can be lovingly used  to prepare food every day.

Nakiri Kitchen Knife Details:

  • High carbon steel blade forged from upcycled Sheffield engineers file
  • Handle made from reclaimed oak fence post from farmland in Devonshire
  • Bronze pin
  • Thin blade for preparing vegetables, It is lightweight, precise.
  • Blades typically 5.5-7.5" in length - you choose.
  • Blade height: typically 45-55mm

Note that this knife is made of high carbon steel which unlike ordinary stainless steel knives, will react to it's environment . See my care tips in my FAQ.

Your knife will vary slightly from these photos, due to the natural of using natural & reclaimed materials, but it's function and design will be the same. Your desired size will be requested after checkout.
