The nakiri is predominantly a vegetable chopping knife with an easy to sharpen 50:50 symmetrical blade. The boxy shape originates from the traditional Japanese usuba knife. This blade shape has become increasingly popular with professional chefs and home cooks as it allows for very fast and efficient food processing. The long flat blade makes almost perfect contact with the cutting board, thus reducing the occurrence of accordion cuts.
The Kohetsu AS nakiri is constructed from Aogami Super steel clad with a protective layer of stainless steel. Rockwell Hardness is 64 for these knives and each batch of steel is tested for consistency. We have made these knives with the aim of maximizing performance while minimizing unnecessary “bling” and its associated cost.
Kohetsu knives cut to the core of blade design and execution. Try one...we know you will agree.

CKTG is at heart a small business so the service is personal. They are one of the rare companies that actually dispatch the order the same day as receiving it and provide tracking information. It is great to deal with an individual by name and it’s evident that they take pride and love in what they do.
Had a problem with one of the products and they went out of their way to resolve. I would highly recommend dealing with this company. It’s nice to find a company who cares and they will get me as a return customer.
Mark is great at answering questions for knife nuts of all levels. His service is second to none. Really appreciate the time he puts into every email as well as the free forum he hosts.
Great experience working with Chef Knives to Go. Quick delivery, and they are great about returning emails. I'm actually waiting on my second knife from them. I'm sure there will be more to come.
Loved the instructional videos on the website.
Great service and quick shipping. Best selection of Japanese knives around. I recommend this site to all of my fellow culinary professionals!
