Forged in Seki, Japan with Blue Paper Carbon Steel with an Iron-Clad, this razor-sharp Nakiri is made from quality steel, budget friendly and highly performant. Handmade, it offers a traditional magnolia wood handle that was pressure fit with heat onto the knife tang - beware that some handles could have or could develop little crevices from the pressure around the tang which is typical from such assembly and won't affect it's reliability with normal use. If this occurs, simply seal it from times to times with bee's wax to prevent unnecessary water infiltration.
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.
