Product information

The Gin-San Sanmai series masterfully embodies the Japanese design philosophy, Shibui, which gracefully harmonizes simplicity and complexity. It brings to life a knife of unmatched minimalist elegance and austere allure, resulting in a profound and commanding presence.

Crafted with meticulous attention, the three-layer blade features a Gin-San (Silver-3) core, renowned for its exceptional thinness, strength, and precision. The walnut octagonal handle not only enhances its visual appeal but also provides a comfortable and secure grip.

Meet the Nakiri, a double bevel knife meticulously designed for precision vegetable work. It takes inspiration from the Japanese single bevel Usuba, showcasing a very thin spine, squared tip, and a wide, straight profile, allowing you to wield it with utmost efficiency and finesse. Experience the grace and functionality of the Gin-San Sanmai series, where form meets function in perfect harmony.
