Large carbon nakiri with a wenge and Elforyn handle

Larger sized nakiri of carbon steel and a handle of wenge and Elforyn (synthetic ivory substitute). This blade is inbetween the size of a usual nakiri and a legitimate Chinese cleaver. It features a much thinner grind than my usual work as it’s primarily aimed for veggie destruction.

Edge Length: 180mm (7.08″)

Height: 62mm (2.44″)

Handle Length: 135mm (5.31″)

Make sure you are aware of the care required for carbon steels (it’s pretty easy, just wipe it after cutting something, hand wash, and wipe dry before storing. It will get a patina). This grind is very thin and the edge must be cared for.
