Nakiri knives are gaining a following in the USA with both professional and home chefs. They are used almost exclusively for cutting vegetables. The classic box shape is a feature of the knife, as is its very flat blade. The shape of the nakiri bōchō differs according to the region of origin. The knives in the Tokyo area are rectangular in shape, whereas the knives in the Osaka area are called kamagata nakiri and have a rounded corner on the far blunt side.

The cutting edge is ground from both sides, called ryōba in Japanese, which makes it easier to cut straight slices through hard ingredients. This is enhanced by the very flat profile of the blade which contacts the cutting board along almost the entire edge. These are very stiff blades with some super thin grinds that are most impressive.

The Nishida nakiri is made from a three-layered construction of Shirogami #1 carbon steel surrounded by a soft iron (jigane) cladding. The outer layer is given a very fine polished finish. The grind to the edge is then bead blasted into a Kasumi style finish. All in all, this is a great looking blade with a good edge...that will benefit from a trip to your favorite stones!

A classic oval Japanese style handle, which is made from rosewood with a black pakka wood ferrule, completes the package.

    4  great blade for chopping, February 23, 2017
    Posted By: J. - verified customer

    very sharp out of the box. was looking for a longer, heavier nakiri for chopping hard vegetables and slicing flank steak for sukiyaki. great knife. it is shiny and can hold fingerprints but is easily taken care of with a quick wipe. Also, service of chef knives to go was top notch. ground shipping was very good and my life arrived well-wrapped, polished and absolutely beautiful out of the box. Look forward to ordering more knives...
