We were able to get a screaming deal on this Tojiro VG1 Nakiri 165mm. We had to buy a bunch of them to be able to offer them at this price. Nakiris are excellent general purpose knives that are the second most popular knife style sold in Japan behind the Santoku style. If you go into a Japanese home kitchen this is the type of knife you will typically find. The blade is made from good quality VG1 stainless steel and if you notice on the choil picture the knife is ground really well for excellent cutting action.

The blade has a chestnut oval handle and a black plastic ferrule. Here are the specs. Another great knife from our friends at Tojiro.

    I got this as a representation of the average knife a Japanese home cook might use, and that's what it seems you getónothing fancy, but a very nice, serviceable nakiri. Sharp enough OOTB but I'm going to extend the cutting edge around the tip a bit to use it on onions. Nice flat profile. I anticipate chopping up tons of vegetables and most other things with this sturdy workhorse. Another great value from Tojiro.

    It is a great knife, especially for the price, however it isn't stainless clad, it stains badly, which is fine, but it wasn't really what I was looking for. I would had given 4 or 5 stars if it didn't say "stainless". I have been using it daily at work for vegetable prep and it has held an edge after sharpening and performed great

    Razor sharp out of the box and feels good in my hand. I like the rounded tip too. Not sure it's a "real" Tojiro but still exceeds my expectations at this price

    I ordered this for vegetable and herb chopping/dicing/mincing duty as my lack of technique was resulting in chips in my blue steel
