Yoshimi Kato has taken the reins of the business that his father-in-law, Hiroshi started and is making some of the best blades coming out of Echizen today.

His dedication to his art can be seen in these fine VG-10 knives which look and feel way more refined than their price would suggest. Constructed with a core (hagane) of VG-10 stainless steel, outer layers (jigane) of softer stainless steel are forged to the hagane to protect the inner core while adding strength and durability. This outer layer is decorated with a beautiful suminagashi (damascus) finish which is etched to further enhance the damascus pattern.

The nakiri is a rectangular vegetable knife with a thin blade. It excels in delicate vegetable cutting and chopping tasks. The Japanese word 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 (like this one) are called kamagata nakiri and have a rounded corner on the far blunt side.

This particular nakiri is a lovely example of the breed featuring a great looking damascus blade coupled to an oval rosewood handle with a black pakka wood ferrule.

    This knife is beautiful beyond words. The handmade craftsmanship is stunning. It has a nice comfortable weight to it. Recommended, for sure! I had it sharpened to have a reference point for the future.

    vg10 It feels very easy to grind and thick so I feel like I'm digging into the material.
