Ideal for anyone looking to make a step forward into the world of Japanese Carbon Steel knives, but are skeptical about the care level on a knife that could break the bank. With a high performing but reactive blade that requires care, they are known as the affordable top-selling knives.
With an optional fitted wooden saya, the 100% handmade classic series features a finish that must be appreciated by its owner - while they show their true handmade characters and each knife is slightly different, up to including various handle wood shadings, they are considered an ideal platform for anyone looking to experiment sharpening, thinning or even polishing carbon steel.
This tank is designed in a Nakiri style, with a thin blade for precise cutting leaving tons of room for your knuckles. It it not designed as a traditional cleaver to cut and wack through bones and other solids.
Nakiri knives are highly known for their long and flat blade. They tend to be fabricated with a higher heel compared to other models and are extremely popular for chopping vegetables. They are the ideal candidate for cutting long veggies in a single chop, but also great for a push or pull cut into harder vegetables. The square shape allows you to easily grip your fingers around the handle with no fear of busting your knuckles when chopping your vegetables.
Many chefs that regularly work with vegetables and fruits consider their Nakiri a primary knife in the kitchen.
