7.5" Nakiri NK- 303
DHF 7.5" Nakiri - African Blackwood ferrule, “Tru-Stone composite turquoise, and stabilized spalted maple burl.
The DHF Nakiri is the vegetable assassin you've been looking for! These knives are ground Flat and Thin to create as little cut resistance as possible. A full thickness spine, with no distal blade taper, keeps the blade firm and straight through all prep projects. Firm, Lightweight, and razor sharp...
AEB-L HC stainless steel allows DHF to design the blade with both high Rockwell hardness abilities and corrosion resistance. This gives the user high performance without the additional maintenance required from pure carbon steel. AEB-L is arguably the nicest culinary stainless steel available today. At 61 HRC this steel has both edge retention and sharpenablity. Many makers push AEB-L to its limits and try to manage a 63+ HRC rating, DHF believes this makes the blades brittle and very difficult to sharpen. As a point of reference, the 'BIG' culinary cutlery companies harden their stainless blades to 52 HRC. We feel that it is important to consider not only 'Out of the box' performance but also the users ability to maintain what is nothing less than a lifetime culinary tool.
