Nakiris are becoming a popular choice in many western kitchens of late. Their compact size and interesting profile have found a new legion of users in both professional and home environments. This is a vegetable cutter of the highest order. The flat edge and extra finger clearance make it a great choice for users who prefer push cutting over a rocking style. The thin blade is made from a super hard steel called HAP40, which is a powdered metallurgy (PM) alloy. The steel is exquisitely heat treated to a high 65-66 HRC.

This is a knife that takes a very sharp edge and holds it for a long time. The blade profile is very flat, even for a nakiri, with a small radius right at the tip end for smaller rock-chopping tasks.

The core HAP40 steel is wrapped in a stainless steel outer layer to aid in strength and wear resistance. The cladding is nicely polished and, together with the lovely semi-custom wenge and tiger maple handle, gives the knife a fine appearance.

As mentioned, the blade is quite thin with virtually no taper. The height at the heel is about 50mm, which is slightly less than average for a nakiri of this length. Fit and finish are of a high standard which combines with its other fine attributes to qualify the Gihei HAP40 nakiri as a great value.
