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

VG1 steel, a high-end Japanese stainless steel, is renowned for its superior edge retention and sharpness. Enriched with carbon and chromium, it offers excellent corrosion resistance. The addition of cobalt, molybdenum, and vanadium enhances its hardness and durability, making VG1 steel ideal for crafting top-quality, long-lasting kitchen knives.

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.
