The Nakiri is a knife that features in many professionalsí knife rolls and home kitchens. This versatile blade is primarily used for chopping vegetables in a straight down cut minimizing push and pull motions. It excels at cutting hard root vegetables but is useful in an all purpose mode. The thin blade and fine grind of this knife preclude it from use on tougher materials like bone however. The Murata Buho Nakiri is a well balanced and nicely finished example of itís type. Featuring a blade forged from Blue #1 carbon steel which is further refined with a great looking and practical black hammer Kurouchi finish. Rockwell hardness is 61-63. A sweet spot for this steel. Itís good looks are enhanced by the octagonal nicely balanced Ho wood Wa handle.

    This is a great knife for the price. It's thin, sharp out of the box, and quite corrosion resistant. Where it looses a lot of points is the handle. Is it even wood? It says so in the description but feels like plastic. That being said, it does feel comfortable in my hand. If you don't care about that, it's great for the money.

    Wonderful knife, holds a razor edge nicely. Sharp out the box but a little work on a fine on a water stone pays off.

    Highly recommended!

    This is not one of my favorite knives. The handle feels cheap and the light weight of the knife makes me feel like i'm going to break it every use. The edge gets razor sharp with a good sharping though. Out of the box this was not sharp enough for me so after 10 min on the stone its a lot better.

    Wonderful knife, you can beat the price. Very sharp holds a great edge. The handle is my favorite part.

    Great value, nice tall profile with great steel. Handle is very comfortable in hand and the octagonal wa handle is tapered for ergonomics.

    Absolutely fantastic knife -- I'd been looking for a reasonably priced hand-made nakiri for some time, and this fit the bill perfectly. The octagonal handle is ideal for me, and the OOTB edge is sharp enough to push-cut paper. Great value for the money, and best of all, there's no cheap plastic ferrule!
