This Gin-San Sanmai series is the perfect example of the Japanese design philosophy Shibui, a balance of simplicity and complexity. The simple elegance and austere look, create a powerful appearance. The three-layer blade with a Gin-San (Silver-3) core is thin, strong, and precise; and the walnut octagonal handle provides a comfortable grip. Nakiris are typically a double bevel knife specifically designed to work with vegetables. The design is derived from the Japanese single bevel Usuba with a very thin spine, squared tip, wide and straight profile.
