Hiroshi Kato hand makes the Koishi knives in Takefu Village. He has been making knives for over fifty years and creates these knives out of Aogami Super Steel with a stainless tuschime kurouchi cladding. The top of the blade is Kuro-Uchi (meaning black-hammer) and refers to the dark color. Tsuchime means hammered and refers to the dimples along the blade. These blades are strikingly beautiful and take razor sharp edges.

The nakiri-bocho, roughly translated, means 'knife for cutting greens' and it certainly excels in that arena. These tipless knives have a unique look and are excellent for any and all vegetable preparations. Their flatter bellies help create a greater length of contact with the cutting board and nakiris are best utilized in a push, or draw cut motion, not so much for Western-style rocking.

    5  a fantastic knife, May 13, 2015
    Posted By: david a

    i wanted to run this knife through a week or so of heavy work in a busy kitchen before i rated it.
    It is a fantastic knife.
    Out of the box it was razor sharp and the fit and finish where just what i hoped for.
    Balance is great and it goes through everything wonderfully from green onions to carrots.

    I mostly got this for use as a line knife because i didn\'t need a full sized chefs knife and i work next to a couple people in a very close environment. I ended up on all my prep work also.

    I have pretty much used this on everything at work not just vegetables and so far its been a great all around knife.
    After beating on it for over a week i still haven\'t had to touch the edge and its still hair popping sharp.

    Every cook in the kitchen has had a go with it and everyone says the same thing, WOW!.

    I would have to say if it got stolen i would cry and then i would order another one.
    I also purchased the CKTG Nakiri Saya B which i would recommend even if you have a knife roll.
