Nakiris are very popular blades in Japan and used primarily to chop vegetables. They have a deft feel and tall blade which endows the knife with a great deal of versatility in its cutting capabilities.

The stunning looks of the Kurosaki R2 Nakiri are only bested by its performance. Kurosaki-san and his brother have used R2 stainless steel as the core steel which they then cover, san-mai style, with stainless steel cladding. The core steel is hardened to 62 HRC. The distinctive way in which they finish these knives is not for looks alone. The unique and very attractive cladding shimmers in the light as it releases food in an almost magical way. As always, the convex grind on these knives is outstanding and ingredient separation is as good as it gets. Out of the box sharpness is right up with the very best knives we carry.

The striking looks of the blade are complemented by a lovely traditional octagonal rosewood wa handle. Fine balance, stunning looks, and outstanding performance are the hallmarks for this great knife line. We strongly recommend that you try one.

    Beautiful knife currently using for vegetables and works great, our teenager finds the height nice and is helping her knife skills with out losing a finger. Like the bling, weight and finish. Has good release. Sharp out of the box and would be afraid to have sharper as the family all cooks and has different knife skills. Our second kurosaki and we think is a great deal at the price point.
