Nakiri knives are a popular choice among both home and professional cooks. They are a perfect utensil for cutting, slicing, or chopping any and all vegetables. Their height appeals to users with large hands or those liking a good board-to-hand clearance.

These “knives for cutting greens” feature a very square shape and double bevel grind. They have quite straight edges for increased chop cutting and slicing prowess.

The Kohetsu Blue #2 nakiri is a really nice example of the breed. It has a well-executed grind and the aesthetics to match. Add in the fact that the blade is constructed from the well-regarded steel known as Aogami # 2, and you have a knife that offers much…for not much at all! The excellent main core steel is protected and strengthened by the addition of stainless steel cladding. Upkeep is reduced considerably while superior edge creation and retention are maintained. This is a bona fide handcrafted blade of great quality and design at a price that is more in keeping with mass-produced items of similar type.

If you have ever wanted to try a nakiri or the excellent Blue #2 steel (or both), this is a perfect and economical place to start.

    Nice big western handle ,full tang ,fabulous price ,very good metal and sharpness. I fixed the little gap at the handle front using an edge wise piece of paper and tamping epoxy in it constantly wipeing off ,working clean and wipeing blade with acitone(nail polish remover) quickly cleaning with soapy water to remove all residue ...wa la beautiful.

    For the money it is a quality entry level knife to reactive steels. I've used it steadily for a couple months now and I am very satisfied with the edge retention and the level of sharpness I can attain with a fine stone and some stropping.
    The blade height and handle are the only quibbles that encourage me to seek another nakari, hence the 4 stars.

    I bought the 270mm gyuto and it's my go to knife. Definitely going to be purchasing the Nakiri. And Steve was right when he said this line screams Pro Kitchen.

    My favorite knife in my kit. The core/edge is carbon steel, so if it's left wet it rusts very quickly, but for a high performance knife and edge like this it's well worth the maintenance. Also, either barkeepers friend or Coca-Cola and a strop take the corrosion off with ease anyways. The edge was brilliant out of the box, and stayed sharp enough, and then sharpened and polished back to a razor very quickly.

    My nakiri knive was sharp out the box. Loved it. But I started noticing the edge is starting to rust. Very upsetting.
