The nakiri is predominantly a vegetable chopping knife with an easy to sharpen 60:40 asymmetrical blade which can be used by lefties or righties. The boxy shape originates from the traditional Japanese usuba knife. This blade shape has become increasingly popular with professional chefs and home cooks as it allows for very fast and efficient food processing. The long flat blade makes almost perfect contact with the cutting board, thus reducing the occurrence of accordion cuts.

The Kohetsu AS nakiri is constructed from Aogami Super steel clad with a protective layer of stainless steel. Rockwell Hardness is 64 for these knives, and each batch of steel is tested for consistency. We have made these knives to maximize performance while minimizing unnecessary “bling” and its associated cost.

Please note, the knife sharpener intentionally thins the edges of these knives to make them perform better, especially on the tip area. Often times you will see a hazy/cloudy scratch pattern as a result. This is not a defect. Please look at the 4th photo on this page to see it (on a different blade).

Kohetsu knives cut to the core of blade design and execution. Try one...we know you will agree.

      An excellent knife, January 12, 2023
    Posted By: Timothy

    I got this knife today! I got it right before service started at work. So I didn't have time to do my prep with it but I played with it in my down time and I LOVE this knife.
    Are covered it with mustard for 15 minutes wipe the mustard off with a wet cloth soaked in apple cider vinegar wash the knife off and the patina that developed and that short amount of time was crazy! The cladding reacted to the core so the entire knife is reactive! I've used a lot of knives over my 17 years of being in kitchens and this here is a nice knife If you have the opportunity grab it!

      Beautifully simple

    I purchased this knife as an introduction to Nakiris and AS steel, and am very satisfied with the knife this far. It is an example of function over form, being simple polished stainless cladding over a reactive AS core. However, it is very light with nice balance and takes a razor edge. It was my go to knife when prepping our Canadian Thanksgiving meal. The core has since developed a beautiful patina, which contrasts beautifully with the cladding, only adding to its aesthetics. The reason for 4 stars are as follows. First, food release could be better with wet starchy foods (particularly potatoes). I think a textured cladding would assist with this (my next purchase will consider this). Secondly, the handle is barely sealed. Washing raised the grain on mine so much that I will be sanding and sealing it in the near future. That said, this is an excellent value for an AS knife. I am sure I will get good use out of it in years to come.

      Great workhorse
    Posted By: Dylan Boissey - verified customer

    I have been using this knife in a professional kitchen environment for over a year now and it performs great. The fit and finish are simple yet beautiful and the core steel takes a SCREAMING edge. I have also found that it is much more versatile than you would think. The non reactive cladding looks great and aids a lot in maintenance, although I would recommend wiping it off after every use anyway. I do not have any problems with reactive ingredients, but I forced a patina as soon as I received the knife. Overall, I love the knife and would recommend it for anyone.

    Love this knife! Very pretty, soft look, and very scary, wicked edge! It came extremely sharp, and with just a little work by someone not very skilled at sharpening (me, lol), became even sharper! An absolute joy to use, so light and well-balanced, and just plows through vegetables. This is going to save me massive prep time and energy, and is fun to use besides.Great customer service, too. I ordered the knife 2-day delivery, and apparently Susan upgraded me to next-day, so I got it a day earlier than expected! Thanks so much for everything! :)
