The Mini Nakiri is, like all of Chadd's work, a true work of art. There are many words to chose from to describe the Mini Nakiri. But "Perfection" is the best one. It all starts with a Japanese "Super Gold 2" Damascus blade polished to a true mirror. The spine of the blade and the finger choil are crowned to right down to the bolsters for ultimate comfort in handling. Achieving this level of refinement take incredible amount of work as well as the skills to pull it off.
The octagonal handle is made from beautiful Gabon Ebony wood. Polished brass bolsters and multi-directional brass spacers are masterfully fitted into the handle, so seamlessly that they feel like an integral part of the handle. The brass impregnated Rhodonite spacer and the butt cap are the centre pieces of this marvelous handle. Again, the transition between the 3 different materials in the handle is seamless.
Whether you are an executive chef or a serious collector, the Mini Nakiri is a fantastic choice and an acquisition you will be proud of.
