Product Description

Inspired in part by the form of the original leaf spring it was forged from, and in part by the Japanese vegetable slicing nakiri, this little kitchen blade flows with subtle organic lines. The surface of the blade bears marks of its journey through time with some of the original pitting, fire scale, and hammer marks remaining. The blade has a razor sharp cutting edge and a thin spoon tip for soft materials.

The friction fit handle was hand shaped from a piece of local Pear wood and displays some of the subtle grey, blue, and pink watercolour effects Pear is known for. The wood is finished with 100% pure tung oil. The blade is 3″ long and the overall length is about 7.5″.

Material: Reclaimed leaf spring steel, Pear wood
Price: $180
This piece is in a private collection in North Vancouver.
