The Tsunehisa AS Nakiri featured here is made from the super steel knowns as AS, or Aogami Super. AS is one of our favorite steels for making knives, as it has the highest wear resistance and lowest toughness of the three Blue Paper steels. Edge holding is truly outstanding and it is also easy to sharpen.

AS contains the highest amount of carbon and chromium of the three alloys, which not only increases its hardness but also gives it a slight advantage over the others in terms of corrosion resistance. This is further enhanced with the addition of a stainless steel cladding. The cladding is somewhat softer or more ductile which protects the inner cutting core from shocks. This knife is given a tsuchime or hammered finish to both enhance its food release capabilities and fine aesthetics.

Nakiri knives are like mini cleavers and are excellent vegetable cutters. They're good all purpose knives that are easy to control and have some blade height to them. This knife has a fairly good flat spot from the heel transitioning into a subtle belly and a finely crafted tip. It is perfect for all styles of cutting.

The sakura style handle is made from cherry wood and it complements the blade both in looks and balance.

      Ridiculous Value for the Price, August 24, 2021
    Posted By: John Tucker

    I've purchased quite a few knives from CKTG and have always been pleased to some level with what arrived...but this is my current king of Bang for your Buck. By a mile. Edge is out-of-the-box nuts. And it keeps it. I've processed hundreds of tomato's and onions with this sucker and have yet to even steel it. Great looking. Great steel. If I were to call out a negative, the top edge is slightly sharp...but that can be remedied easily. I would be happy- no thrilled - with this knife at double the price. At $125...I mean...just get one.
