The Murata Western Nakiri is a great way to enter the world of Japanese knives. Made by master blacksmith Takeo Murata, this fine instrument looks and feels like a knife costing far more than the modest price we are selling it for here.

Murata-san constructs his knives using Aogami Blue Paper #1 carbon steel and then completes them with an attractive kurouchi finish. Kurouchi is a black carbonized finish put on knives to protect the steel and provide a barrier on carbon steel knives. Care should still be taken with their maintenance especially with keeping them dry between uses. Nakiri knives are normally used to cut vegetables with a push up and down cut. But they are versatile enough to be a useful tool for other uses around the kitchen. The western style handle is made from black pakka wood and secured to the tang with 3 rivets.
