As of 8/1/2020 we have updated the handles to the ones pictured. Itís a big upgrade over the stock ones with plastic ferrules. The Muneyoshi White #2 Nakiri is made with the very popular Hitachi white paper #2 steel as the hagane (inner core), and a jigane (outer cladding) that is applied in an attractive and durable kurouchi finish. This gives the knife a distinctive look while aiding greatly in its excellent food release properties.

The head blacksmith of Muneyoshi is Mr. Suzuki, and he forms sickles and knives by doing hot-forging and cold-forging repeatedly to refine the steel grains. This operation increases the sharpness and toughness of the edge. Another unusual feature of this nakiri is that it has a spine that looks like a backbone, which works to reinforce the blade and add rigidity to the knife.

These are single bevel blades that are ground flat on the back side. As such, they are only applicable to right-handed users. The upside of single bevel knives is their in-built acute cutting edge. Being single sided means that the inclusive edge angle is about 15 degrees as opposed to a double edge where the angle is around 30 degrees. This enhances the cutting abilities, makes food release easier, and minimizes wedging, especially with hard vegetables.

The very traditional oval handle is made from ho wood with a black plastic ferrule and is branded with kanji elements.

      Great knife!, July 30, 2021

    This is the sharpest thing I have ever held. Super lightweight and feels great in the hand. The thick spine is strange, but doesnít seem to affect performance.
