We have an Introductory Sale on this new Okeya Blue #2 Nakiri with walnut handle and black pakka wood ferrule.

We are really pleased with the new offerings coming out of the small blacksmith shop operated by Okeya-san and his son. They have recently moved into the kitchen knife world having worked almost exclusively on kogatana blades. These are multi purpose blades used for all kinds of cutting and whittling tasks. This new nakiri is another example of how well they have managed the transition.

Nakiri knives are made to cut and slice vegetables: short, thin, square, with a very flat profile. You need to be comfortable using a tall knife, but if you are, you will find these knives to be excellent for their given task.

These knives are fashioned from the ever popular Blue #2 steel, hardened to 60HRC, which is clad with a soft iron for durability and added strength. The outer layer is treated to a nice looking finish rather reminiscent of a nashiji, or pear skin, look. Some really nice kanji script adds to the aesthetic really well.

Finally, a traditional octagonal walnut and pakka wood handle is added to complement the blade and give the knife a very up market look.

    Very lightweight and well balanced knife, with a razor sharp edge right out of the box. Absolutely destroys vegetables!
