Dmitriy Popov Tall Nakiri 181mm

Australia's Dmitriy Popov, a talented chef, makes an incredible chef knife, and this pre-owned offering in new and unused condition presents a unique opportunity to experience a stunning piece of this artist's work. At 181mm / 7.1" long by a whopping 75mm tall, the compound 'S-grind' blade falls somewhere between nakiri and vegetable cleaver categories, forged from damascus-clad SG2 carbon steel with hammered texture along the flats and a silky smooth, satin finish below. Balanced just in front of the handle above the blade's aggressive heel, this cutting instrument is an absolute pleasure to hold, dressed in beautiful spalted tamarind with a dessert ironwood bolster, tapered back to front in traditional shield-style wa profile.
