Blade Type

The Nakiri knife, revered in Japanese culinary traditions, is engineered for exceptional vegetable cutting. Featuring a distinct, straight-edged, and rectangular blade, it excels in creating uniform, precise cuts and aesthetic presentation. Its technical design ensures efficiency and precision, making it a valuable tool for both professional chefs and home cooks.

Steel Type

Japanese White Steel #1, the purest form in the "Shirogami" (White Paper Steel) series, is highly regarded for its exceptional sharpness and ease of sharpening. With a slightly higher carbon content than White Steel #2, it delivers superior edge retention, but like White 2 cannot be left wet for even short periods of time, othwerwise rust spots can occur. If you’re fastidious in your knife maintenance, this knife can steel can be extremely rewarding to use.

Recommended Maintenance

Store it in a dry environment using magnetic strips, knife rolls, or sayas. Avoid hitting hard or frozen objects and twisting the blade while cutting. These knives are not dishwasher safe. Clean with hot water and a soft cloth, and dry immediately after use to prevent rust spots on the high carbon steel. For more information please read the blog below.

Introducing

Matsubara Hamono

They originate from Nagasaki, and the business is headed by Tanaka Kama Kogyo. The history of Matsubara blades can be traced back to the Battle of Dan-no-ura of 1185. After the battle, Naminohira Yukiyasu, a master blacksmith of the defeated Taira Clan, fled from the victorious Minamoto Clan and went into hiding in the Province of Hyuga (today's Miyazaki). When demand for swords soared during the Warring States Period, his descendants moved to Matsubara in 1474. They forged swords on the grounds of Hachiman Shrine and, at the request of local farmers, started to make crescent-shaped sickles. This is the beginning of Matsubara sickles.

Knife Care

This knife is made from a high-carbon steel and as such, will require a little more care than a regular off-the-shelf knife. It must be dried shortly after use, as prolonged exposure to moisture can cause rust spots to appear. A very light coat of oil during storage also helps to prevent rust spots. A patina (colouration and seasoning of the steel) will occur with use.
