The Japanese word nakiri translates into knife for cutting greens. The shape of nakiris differs according to the region of origin: knives in the Tokyo area are rectangular in shape, and knives in the Osaka area are called kamagata nakiri and have a rounded corner on the far blunt side. Of course, one should not mistake any nakiri for a cleaver as it is not intended for those types of chopping tasks.

The typical oblong blade has a very flat profile for maximum edge-to-board contact. No accordion cuts around here! It is a thin blade purposefully made to avoid splitting or wedging in hard ingredients. The squared off shape also makes it a perfect shovel for food transferring.

This particular nakiri is made from White #2 steel which is hammer forged in the san mai method of awasi (cladding). This entails wrapping the inner core of the White #2 steel with a soft iron outer layer. The cladding process makes it easier to manufacture the blade while adding strength and wear resistance to the knife. Shirogami #2 is a first rate cutlery steel capable of taking very keen edges easily and holding those edges very well. The blade is mated to a lovely flame orange and black octagonal custom handle.
