The Harukaze AS Nakiri 165mm is a new item in the line-up of this price conscious range of kitchen cutlery. Made specifically for CKTG, these value added knives are made from one of the top carbon steels, Aogami Super.

AS is a steel derived from Aogami 2, or Blue # 2, which has been augmented with the addition of more carbon, chromium, and tungsten. It is regarded as the best of the Hitachi Blue paper carbon steels with regard to both edge retention and its ability to be sharpened to an acute angle. The core steel is hardened to 63 HRC and clad with soft stainless alloy which adds strength and protects the knife from reacting with acids or moisture.

Then is a vegetable cutter of the highest order. The flat edge and extra finger clearance make it a great choice for users who prefer push cutting over a rocking style. The thin blade is made to push through the hardest ingredients without wedging or fracturing the produce. This is a knife that takes a very sharp edge and holds it for a long time. The blade profile is very flat with a small belly and radius right at the tip end for smaller rock-chopping tasks. The blade is mated to a nice rosewood oval handle with a pakka wood ferrule.

      Nice Handling Push Cutter
    Posted By: Martin Schwartz - verified customer

    I wanted a way handled nakiri and went with this one. It is an ounce lighter than my wife's Wusthof but due to the forward balance feels heavier. For my large hand this is perfect for a pinch grip. The fit and finish is good and it is sharp ootb. It needs a little time on a strop, however. Excellent knife for the price.

    First, I am neither a professional chef nor a knife aficionado. I own several kitchen knives but had no nakiri. I decided to get a carbon steel knife for a change. The fit and finish of this knife is very good. The balance is good for a pinch grip and it's a great vegetable knife.

    This knife is a steal! The grind is almost as good as my Shiabata guyto. I don't even think I'm going to strop it it's razor sharp out of the box. Trust me buy this knife I still can't believe I only paid 130 for it.
