Description: If you're a great cook (or if you're aspiring to become one!) and would like to have a knife that is as attractive as it is useful but don't want the same knives as everybody else, check out this handmade beauty by Jim Arbuckle.
Based on the traditional Japanese nakiri, or vegetable cleaver, this striking one-of-a-kind cutting tool has the double-beveled edge geometry you'd expect from a Western knife, with the rectangular shape of a traditional Japanese knife ideal for chopping fruit and vegetables. The thin edge geometry makes it a precision tool, rather than the Arbuckle equivalent to a meat cleaver.
This piece features a very deep choil, or cut-out, for the forefinger to rest in. A hallmark of Jim's work, this makes the knife easy to hold -- even with slippery hands. The blade is made from ATS-34, high carbon stainless steel made by Hitachi. It is hardened and double tempered to Rc 58-59, then hand rubbed to a satin finish. Jim has hand-carved serpentine filework along the tang and part of the spine. This is not only decorative but adds a non-slip area on the back of the handle, aiding grippiness even in the harsh environment of the kitchen. The blade is quite hard and takes an exceptional edge.
