Born out of a collaboration between Sakai knife makers and masters of traditional Echizen lacquerware, these beautiful and hygienic knives are waterproof and durable to a degree unattainable with wooden handles.
The Nanairo handles are injection molded from ABS and finished in a wide variety of different designs, all with a sense of traditional
Japanese beauty. Taking up a Nanairo knife in your hands, it will feel well balanced, pleasantly warm to the touch, and overall similar
to one with a standard wooden handle. The blades are made from stainless, high-performance molybdenum steel and are ground and
sharpened by the craftsmen of Sakai.
Their excellent geometry and sharpness make them suitable for demanding professional use.
Available in 14 designs and 4 blade lengths from 210 to 300mm (30mm increments) for a total of 56 combinations.
