Tojiro Shirogami Hairline Nakiri 165mm

How do you spell deal? We think this knife screams the word. Made with the ever popular Shirogami #2 steel, the Tojiro Shirogami Hairline Nakiri is a lot of knife for very little money.

White #2 steel is a very popular alloy for kitchen knives. This inner core is covered with a soft iron layer using the san-mai style of cladding. This leaves the Shirogami #2 cutting edge and spine exposed. The blade is very well executed with a nice hairline finish on the upper portion and a sand blasted finish on the lower part. This gives way to the exposed cutting edge.

The nakiri is a popular knife for vegetable cutting. The square blade and tall profile make the task of chopping and slicing most vegetables a breeze. They are made thin to avoid wedging and to aid with food release. Remember that the iron cladding is reactive and will require careful cleaning and drying between uses. The well made blade is coupled to a simple traditional oval handle made from Ho wood.

This is the perfect knife for anyone looking to try a new style blade. But it also a great gift to a budding chef, student or anyone wanting to try a real Japanese kitchen knife.

Comes with a nice paper box and measures 165mm on the edge and 300mm overall. Weight is 110g.

    5  Fun knife - great bargain, January 16, 2019
    Posted By: Joseph D.

    I am loving this knife. Its my first Japanese knife, first carbon knife, and my first knife that's so reactive. I did have to start over by scrubbing some patina and very light rust off with barkeepers friend, but it took 2 seconds and I've been working on the patina ever since. It develops a brownish tan and in some places blueish hue. I like it. I'm new to sharpening on stones but this one makes me feel like a champ. Super simple to sharpen up on a cheap 1000/6000 wet stone. I can't wait to buy a different style and continue with the Japanese and carbon blade knife journey.

    5  Wow! What an amazing value, December 1, 2018
    Posted By: Mike

    Hard to believe you can get so much knife for so little cabbage. This is a great knife for entry into carbon steel. As others have said, it's incredibly reactive. Cut up an onion, set it down, and you can watch it turn yellowish green in no time at all. Most carbon steel knives aren't this bad so if you can maintain this one any other shouldn't be a problem. It's perfect if you want to learn how to sharpen and hone as it sharpens quickly and easily and takes a fine edge.

    You definitely get what you pay for. Great beginner knife, but requires a constant sharpening to keep it super sharp.

    5  Amazing, Great Project Knife, but not for everyone, August 21, 2018

    I gave it 5 stars so I love it, but one can take the facts of my experience and justify any rating.

    It came with a course toothy edge out of the box that did not even last through this home cook's first bag of vegetables. On the other hand, it is easy to sharpen and takes a very nice edge.

    The knife came with a profile such that the middle of the knife cannot touch a flat cutting board. I am a beginner, but if I am reading right, a good, purist nakiri will have a dead flat profile, but some might have a slight belly. As a beginner sharpener, I was able to fix this problem in minutes with a 220, 1000, 5000 stone progression.

    Yes, it is reactive. Pay attention to this. However, this is not much of a problem once you get a patina and realize what a carbon knife demands. I always wipe.

    The handle needs some work. Still, reasonable for a $31 knive.

    Does it cut? Yeah. That is why I gave 5 stars in-spite of several short comings. I wager this thing cuts better than any other similarly priced knife on the planet.

    If you are interested and equipped for some sharpening, or willing to buy at least a medium/finishing combo stone this knife might be good for you. If you want something that just works out of the box, drive on.

    Well yes its quite reactive. It WILL rust in short order if you let it sit there wet. However, you are buying it knowing this fact. Don't bother forcing a patina, it will be there in short order. If a always pristine glowing knife is important leave this alone and go stainless. The handle is probably better than you deserve on a 30 dollar knife. I would say that the handle is better than the lower priced Okeya knives. Touch it up with sandpaper or a emery board and good to go. The choil and spine can use a couple minutes as well. But it will sharpen up to completely vicious. It's ridiculously thin and given the edge it takes it drops through most produce like you cut air. It's not a handmade beauty queen but it is a performer beyond its cost. It could use a bit more weight, but there again it would be thicker. I don't have the experience to say if that would be a beneficial tradeoff. Final verdict? Why the hell not if you don't have a better nakiri already?? I use it all the time.

    4  Great Value for introduction to Japanese Knives, June 2, 2017
    Posted By: bob zaboski - verified customer
    4 people found this review helpful

    For the price this is a good introduction to the good and not so good world of Japanese knifes. The good? Very thin blade came razor sharp out of the box. I was making shish kabobs and went right through the tomatoes, shrooms, pork tenderloin, bell peppers but when i got to the onions, the bad side of a fully reactive knife like this one is came out. The onions turned gray, the knife got nasty yellow and slowed down cutting. The other issue I had was my knife had a slight hollow in the middle of the edge so it couldn't touch the board.Back to the good..Fixing the blade on my sharpening stones was pretty easy, and this knife is super easy to sharpen and takes a great edge making it a natural for learning to sharpen.Final verdict: I would spend $10 more and get the Tojiro ITK Nakiri that has a Kurouchi finish to limit the reactive area of the blade.

    The blade is great and has a nice ergonomic feel and is very sharp. However, after only 2 uses it has already formed a patina from the metal reacting to vegetables.

    I'd rate this knife 6 stars if I could. LASER LIKE PERFORMER!!! I REPEAT!! LASER LIKE PERFORMER!! Still cant believe that I paid $40 for this knife. Outperforms ALL of my more expensive jap knives. Crazy thin at the edge. Sharpened it with my shapton 1.5, 5, 8k and stropped it on some plain leather and BOOM! Got myself a lightsaber. HIGHLY recommended! I promise you wont regret it. Replaced my beloved takeda funayuki as my go to knife.. LASER LIKE!! Cant emphasize it enough! Amazing knife for the price!!
