Master blacksmith Katsuyasu Kamo operates from his small forge in Takefu Village, a famed melting pot of blacksmiths that Mr. Kamo helped found. His forte was originally in the industrial and craft end of the blade making business but we are very glad he has ventured into making blades more fit for the kitchen.

Mr. Kamo uses the ubiquitous stainless steel VG10 as his core. He then covers this with a multi-layer damascus stainless steel. VG-10 “super steel” is composed of carbon, chromium, cobalt, manganese, molybdenum, silicon, and vanadium. All of these relatively small amounts of other metals give the VG-10 steel its most important properties, such as its ability to hold an edge coupled with great durability. The core is hardened to about 61 HRC.

The nontraditional handle is made of a sturdy and distortion-free multi ply oak wood. The possibilities of shrinking or deformation are very much reduced. The handle and blade are connected by a forged, solid stainless steel bolster. This results in a very durable, easy to maintain, and well balanced kitchen knife.

At 160mm long and 49mm tall, this is a classic nakiri in every way. Designed to cut vegetables with ease, the flat edge and extra finger clearance make it a great choice for users who prefer push cutting over a rocking style. This nakiri will amaze you with its ability to fall through the hardest ingredients.

      One Amazing Knife, October 30, 2018
    Posted By: Rob - verified customer

    I own several Asian knives, but this one has become my favorite. Defiantly my go to knife. It has perfect balance and an amazingly sharp and durable blade. Truly a work of a master.

      Favorite knife in my roll, October 17, 2018
    Posted By: Frank - verified customer

    I am a cook. I do a hundred meals a day. I use it for 3 weeks. It's still really sharp and I have not spared it. This is my first Nakiri. I love it. I hardly use my chef's knife anymore.
