This rather unusual nakiri is constructed from Aogami 2 (Blue #2) high carbon steel. This is one of the most popular steels in the world of kitchen knives. The alloy is known for its outstanding edge life and overall toughness. Blue steels are a bit harder to sharpen than whites, which do cut better as they dull down. But the edge on blue steel is one of the longest lasting of the paper steels. This core steel is laminated in the san-mai style with a softer stainless steel which is given a lovely nashiji (pear skin) finish. This adds strength, reduces mass, and makes daily maintenance a breeze.

We are always on the lookout for unusual knives of all types and the Matsubara Blue #2 Nashiji Tall Nakiri certainly ticks all the unique boxes in our opinion. This was created as a result of our customer comments, so we hope it hits a chord with you.

    I am in love with this nikiri. Itís the first I have owned and it took a bit of getting used to. Out the box I gave it a little strop and wow, razor sharp. Very precise and the weight helps too. Canít believe it took me this long to own one!
