The NTS-Solingen 455 Maylily is a 6″ thinner with classic centered-to-the-crescent styling. Modern touches include the “V” shape to the teeth themselves for a bit of added texture to the cut, and hollow grinding to the inner blade planes. Unlike upon the non-thinning Maylily line, the standard blade does not have micro-corrugation upon this model (sometimes referred to as ‘Catch Cut’ due the popularity of a competing brand’s patent upon that trademark).
Weight is 53 grams.
Handmade in Solingen, Germany.
