Custom assembled at Kakushin's knife shop with a unique epoxy wa-handle, the suminagashi blade was forged in Japan from highly performant Shirogami Steel also known as White #2. With a 4.10mm thick spine at the bolster that tempers off to 1.5mm at the tip, it's front balanced for the ones that love to pinch grip their blades - designed and hardened to hold and edge that will slice and dice with extreme precision for extended periods.

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.
