Made in Seki Japan which has a history of 800 Years of blacksmith in making swords, knives and cutlery.  The Hamon series is fantastic because of it's low price point, sharp edge, shiny look and quality construction. Made from subv-zero treated Swedish-Stainless Steel, this 165mm Nakiri is shaped with a smaller 45mm heel compared to the traditional models for the ones that like a mid-sized heel.

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.
