Here is a piece I started working on some time ago. I asked Jon at Japanese Knife Imports if he could help me name it. His response wa "Call it a Kamagata Nakiri" So there you have it. Its an idea I had last year, thinking it would be a crossover between a cleaver and a nakiri.

Ok specs:
Blade is Alabama Damascus "Buckshot" pattern @ HRC 60-61
230 mm on the edge
70 mm high
2.5 mm spine
distal taper, slight convex grind. Blade edge is flat for about 120 mm in the center, and the toe and tip are raised between 2-3 mm.

Handle:
Faux ivory, black G10 on either side of a turquoise spacer and dyed stabilized birds eye maple.

Asking $650

Even if you aren't interested in purchasing it, I would like to hear your thoughts on it.
