Shigeki Tanaka Nashiji Blue #2 Nakiri 165mm. The knife is hammer-forged by Shigeki and features a nice nashiji with hand-engraved kanji on the face of the blade. The cladding is stainless steel and the core steel Aogami #2, a premier carbon steel capable of taking extremely keen edges and holding those edges through large volumes of produce. The grind is very thin and evenly ground which gives the knife outstanding performance. The handle is an upgraded walnut octagonal with black pakka ferrule. As with any hand-produced item, these knives do vary from one another. Please wipe the knife-edge dry after washing it to avoid rusting.

      High performance , March 26, 2022
    Posted By: David Liang

    This is a very high performing blade. It is ground super thin behind the edge and simply glides through product, and yet is quite thick behind the spine and so has the robustness that you expect when you're reaching for a nakiri. My copy's cutting edge has not patinaed at all, so I am assuming that it's not Blue #2, I'm guessing I got a copy with VG-10 for some reason. I'm not complaining though, whatever steel it is it hasn't chipped, is easy to sharpen because of how thin it is, and holds the edge fairly well. Great stuff!
