Yamashin White #1 Nakiri 165mm. This authentic Japanese traditional kitchen knife line features hand-forged double-layer white-paper steel blade (white #1) but is very reasonably priced. These are every day kitchen knives that many good cooks love to use in Japan. They sharpen really well and hold a nice edge. The grinds on these knives for the money are impressive which makes them a great overall value. If you've never tried a good Japanese knife and don't want to spend a ton of money these would be an excellent choice. Care for carbon steel knives is simple. Just wipe them dry after you use them and don't let water or acid linger on the blade. The knife will patina over time adding to the great rustic look of these knives. These knives now come with an upgraded walnut handle with black pakka wood ferrule.

    This Nakiri, while not winning beauty contests in the kitchen, is still a fantastic dependable vegetable prep machine! I'm a lead cook at a small retreat center that caters to many special diets. I was looking for a fast veggie chopper for a long vegetarian retreat and this Yamashin fits the bill nicely. I rounded the spine with sandpaper as it was a little sharp, and gave the edge a quick sharpen on a 6000 grit stone and a leather strop with .5 micron diamond paste. After that the weight of the knife melted through boxes of zuccinni, carrots, celery and onions. If you are looking for a dependable entry level nakiri that won't break your heart of some helpful staffer decides to use right on a hard counter this is for you.
