The 180mm Nakiri from Konosuke is made from White #2 steel and is attached to an octagonal ebony handle with a blonde buffalo horn ferrule. The Fujiyama series has a thicker profile and geometry compared to the White #2 series. This is a great vegetable cleaver. Perfect for large amounts of vegetable prep or when you just need a few julienne carrots. This steel is known for the extremely fine, screaming sharp edge it is capable of achieving. It is a fairly reactive carbon steel alloy, so extra care after use is highly recommended. As always, with all our Konosuke knives, you have the option of purchasing with or without a saya.
