The Tani White #2 Nakiri is a new addition to this great value line of kitchen knives forged by blacksmith Tani san. He is a second generation craftsman who plies his trade out of his shop in Sakai City. We are very impressed with the knives he is making from Hitachi White #2 steel. This is a classic Nakiri in terms of shape and dimensions. The blade length of 172mm is perfectly proportioned to the 48mm height. It has a characteristic almost flat edge with a nicely rounded tip. It is a stout knife, weighing in at 6.5oz.

The construction is hammer forged san-mai with the core steel being clad with a soft iron which covers both sides of the core but is not wrapped over the spine, so the core is exposed at the edge and spine. The primary bevel starts about 2/3 down the face and is given a nice hairline fish. This contrasts very well with the migaki (polished) finished main face. Construction and fit and finish are very well executed, especially for a knife at this price point.

The handle is made from keyaki wood with a nice brown pakka wood ferrule.
