Made in Shimabara city, Nagasaki Prefecture, Japan by an independent blacksmith Junichi-San who does every step of the knife making himself. Being a 3rd generation blacksmith he cumulates 84 years of knife making history.
With a 75mm heel, the Matsu Nakiri is unique to it's kind and fabrication. Offering the look of a Cleaver, it is considered as a Nakiri due to it's razor-sharp blade which is more brittle and not designed to cut through bones and other solid.
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.
