Makoto Tadokoro is a young blacksmith from Tosa Japan and was trained by Morihiro san from Sakai who is considered one of the best blade sharpeners in Japan. In the case of this knife, he used the highly regarded G3 stainless steel. G3, also known as Silver 3 steel, Ginsanko, or Gin3, is stainless steel made by Hitachi Metals. It is a fine-grained high carbon stainless steel that possesses a similar cutting feel and ease of sharpening to classic carbon steel. Ginsan steel is an excellent stainless steel for forging and it is a very similar alloy to white steel in terms of edge formation and sharpness. We have a great affinity for this stainless alloy for many reasons, including ease of sharpening and general maintenance.

Nakiris are a popular choice in many Western kitchens. The flat edge and extra finger clearance of this style of the blade make it a great choice for users who prefer push cutting over a rocking style. The edge geometry and grinds are very well executed, resulting in a nakiri that will surprise you with its ability to fall through the hardest ingredients.

The nicely crafted octagonal handle is made from rosewood with a black pakkawood ferrule. It looks great and feels good in the hand. All around this is a really nice, easy-to-maintain, hand-made nakiri.
