The nakiri is a traditional Japanese vegetable cleaver, and its interesting shape serves a purpose, and serves it well. The blunted end makes this knife safer to use quickly, and its height makes it easy to guide across the produce you are cutting with your non-knife hand. With a nakiri and good technique, youíll be shocked how much faster and more accurately you can process vegetables, and itís so much more fun and gratifying, youíll start making a list of unfortunates that you can pawn that mandolin off on.
Forged from Aogami #2 or blue paper #2 steel, this knife is heat treated to 62 HRC, ground to a fine edge that is neither brittle nor prone to rolling. This translates to a blade that will take a steep edge and hold it for longer than a comparable European stainless steel knife. The kurouchi finish consists of the carbonized coating created during heat treating, and it helps protect your knife from rust. This is a great tool for vegetable prep, and with this steel at this price, itís also a bargain.
Great feel and balance,very sharp and maintains a wonderful edge. All our line cooks ask me to borrow it for cutting herbs. Very reactive steel,take care to keep it dry and oiled when storing.
Excellent value for the price.

Like a samurai ninja blade. Very nice.
CKTG is at heart a small business so the service is personal. They are one of the rare companies that actually dispatch the order the same day as receiving it and provide tracking information. It is great to deal with an individual by name and itís evident that they take pride and love in what they do.
Had a problem with one of the products and they went out of their way to resolve. I would highly recommend dealing with this company. Itís nice to find a company who cares and they will get me as a return customer.
Mark is great at answering questions for knife nuts of all levels. His service is second to none. Really appreciate the time he puts into every email as well as the free forum he hosts.
