The Ebuchi White #2 Workhorse Nakiri is a recent addition to this fine line of kitchen knives forged by young blacksmith Mr. Ebuchi. He is a second-generation craftsman who plies his trade out of his shop in Sakai City. We are very impressed with the knives he is making from Hitachi White #2 steel.

While this is a classic nakiri in terms of shape, its dimensions are not so common. This is a true workhorse blade, which is unusual in a nakiri. The spine measures a thick 4mm at the heel, while the blade length of 184mm is perfectly proportioned to the 55mm height. It has a characteristic almost flat edge with a nicely rounded tip. Yes, it is a very stout and stiff knife, weighing in at almost 8oz, but it is well very balanced and comfortable in hand. The grinds are well executed and the bevel is 50/50 for both left- and right-handed users.

The construction is hammer forged san-mai, with the core steel being clad with a soft iron that covers both sides but is not wrapped over the spine, leaving the core exposed at the edge and spine.

The main blade face is given a nice hairline finish, which contrasts very well with the faux kasumi (sand blasted) primary bevel. The handle is made from magnolia wood with a nice buffalo horn ferrule and a D shape. Construction, fit and finish are very well executed.
