Handmade in Japan, the Torimasu series is ideal for anyone looking to make a step forward into the world of Japanese Carbon Steel knives, but are skeptical about the care requirements at a premium price. With a high performing but reactive blade that requires care, they are very affordable and show their true handmade characters, which must be appreciated by the buyer. They are an ideal platform for anyone looking to experiment sharpening, thinning or even polishing carbon steel without breaking the bank.
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.
