This knife is made honyaki style, with one piece of high carbon steel, and with a 55/45 edge, it can easily be sharpened to suit your preference, whether you are right or left handed. The G-type series is Nenohi’s premier line and comes with the P-Maicarta handle. More affordable than the SD series, it performs to Nenohi’s exacting standards.
