Satoshi Nakagawa White #3 Honyaki 300mm Kiritsuke Yanagiba with Ebony and Horn

Crafted by the illustrious Satoshi Nakagawa, a protégé of Kenichi Shiraki of Shiraki Hamono, this knife is a testament to dedication, tradition, and unparalleled craftsmanship. Originating from Sakai, Japan, each piece tells a story of the legacy and skill passed down through generations.

Under the guidance of Kenichi Shiraki, Nakagawa-san has honed his skills to produce knives that are not just tools but masterpieces. With Shiraki-san's retirement in 2020, Nakagawa-san continues the art of honyaki knife making, each blade reflecting his discipline, skill, and passion for the craft.

This particular knife combines the precision of a Yanagiba with the versatility of a Kiritsuke tip, making it an exceptional tool for intricate detailing and effortless skin scoring. Crafted from pure carbon steel and featuring a striking wave pattern, it is both a visual and functional marvel, reflecting the meticulous forging process unique to Nakagawa-san's craftsmanship.

If you are looking for a stunning showpiece, White #3 abura honyaki are the best value because of a lower failure rate during production. It is also the toughest honyaki, and an excellent performer. It will have a lower hardness than water quenched honyaki knives, so it is less prone to chipping, but requires more frequent sharpening.
