Gesshin Uraku 165mm SKD Nakiri

This series from Gesshin Uraku has an SKD 11 core and stainless cladding.  SKD 11 is a semi stainless tool steel that happens to be great for kitchen knives.  The cladding of this knife is entirely stainless, but the core steel may darken or patina over time.  However, you won’t find it to be reactive with acidic foods at all.


These knives are very thin and have nice geometry.  They come with ho wood octagon handles and matching sayas.
