We have been seeing a rise in interest for tall nakiri style knives of late. These blades look like a blend of a standard nakiri and a Chinese cleaver. They have the thin grinds normally associated with the vegetable cutter but they are much taller. Large ingredients, big hands, or a simple desire for a taller blade are addressed with this versatile shape. It also makes food scooping a breeze. So while it resembles a cleaver, it is more of a nakiri in terms of grinds and profile. Also, like normal nakiri blades it is very flat along the edge.

Bladesmith Makoto Kurosaki is creating some outstanding knives and this one is no exception. It is made from Aogami Super high carbon steel. A softer stainless steel is used to encase the hard AS steel which protects it from damage and corrosion. The AS hagane is hardened to 62+ HRC which bestows the blade with the ability to take and hold a super sharp edge.

The most outstanding attribute of the knives coming out of Makoto-sanís shop is the superb grinds. They are quite exceptional and better than many we have seen in knives costing far more than these. His creations are serious cutters and we know you will be impressed when you use them.
