We are very pleased to have discovered yet another young gun blacksmith during our annual spring visit to Japan last year. Naoki Mazaki is just starting to establish himself in the industry and is already making some really nice blades. He is based in Sanjo City, Japan and works by himself undertaking every process in his small workshop.

We are currently stocking two versions of his knives, both constructed from White paper #2 steel made by the Hitachi Metals Company. White # 2 steel is a pleasure to sharpen, takes a silky edge, exhibits little to no chipping, and has fair edge retention. It is a very reactive steel and will require careful attention to cleaning and drying after every use.

Nakiris are a popular choice in many western kitchens of late. Their compact size and interesting profile have found a new legion of users in both professional and home environments. This is a vegetable cutter of the highest order. The flat edge and extra finger clearance make it a great choice for users who prefer push cutting over a rocking style.

The blade is matched to a very nicely finished octagonal white oak handle and buffalo horn ferrule.
