The Nakiri is primarily used to chop vegetables with a push/pull method. Its blade shape is derived from the traditional Japanese Usuba. The very flat profile of the edge ensured that the full length of the blade contacts the cutting board so eliminating accordion cuts. Nakiris are becoming more popular in western kitchens where they were hardly seen just a few years ago. Takeda-san hand forges and shapes each of these fine blades out of the highly regarded Hitachi Blue Aogami steel. This is then clad with a softer carbon steel to reinforce and protect the core. The antique looking finish known as kurouchi is a remnant from the forging and tempering stages of blade making. This carbon looking scale aids in the protection of the steel from corrosion and rust. In keeping with Takeda-sanís other knives, this is quite a thin nakiri and coupled with its superior blade geometry you will find it to be a quick and nimble cutter of all vegetable types. It will take a super sharp edge and hold it through a full prep session with aplomb. It comes with a nicely constructed rosewood handle mated to an ebony ferrule.
