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.
