Matsubara Blue #2 Nashiji Kiri Cleaver 190mm. This excellent knife 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.

Looking like the offspring from an encounter between a cleaver and bunka unique knife is a wonderful tool for almost every cutting and chopping duty in the kitchen. It is thin like a bunka but it is tall like a cleaver and great for tall ingredients, big hands, or a simple desire for a taller blade are addressed with this versatile shape. The knife is finished off with a nice custom octagonal handle.

We are always on the lookout for unusual knives of all types and the Matsubara Blue #2 Nashiji Kiri Cleaver 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.

    5  Amazing Knife, August 13, 2020
    Posted By: Max Martin

    Incredible. Can do everything a chef's knife can do and much more. Surface area a huge plus. And pictures don't do it full justice, it's extremely beautiful. This is a very powerful knife.

    5  Iam so happy perfect knive...3 Days delivery to Germany, March 16, 2020

    The knife was delivered to Germany in 3 days incredibly quickly. It is perfect and light as a feather. The blade is incredibly thin and razor-sharp. Almost as thin as a $ 4 nakiri made from cheap tin. Our friend has worked as a Thai cook for over 30 years, she immediately fell in love with the knife, so light and thin, just the right thing in a normal kitchen. we all love the knife, especially because it is tall, so you can better shovel the sliced vegetables into the pots than with a normal nakiri. Simply wonderful to cook with ... a dream came true!
    Tanks a lot for great service and incredibly fast delivery.
    Greetings from Germany
