The Tsubaki Kori Blue #2 Tall Nakiri is made by the young blacksmith, Mr. Miyazaki. He works on a small island off the southern coast of Japan close to Nagasaki, where he hammer forges a very small line of specialized blades using Blue #2 carbon steel. He does the entire process himself.

These knives are made from the high quality, high-carbon steel called Aogami Blue #2. In order to retain their edge and add strength to the blade, they are constructed with a layer of softer iron on the outside of the core. He hardens the blade using pine charcoal to a temperature of about 800 degrees centigrade. He then water quenches it to make the blade much tougher.

The cladding is given a really great looking satin finish that is reminiscent of ice. Kori means ice in Japanese which is a perfect description of the frosty look of the sand blasted finish.

Nakiris are designed to chop vegetables. They feature very thin blades that are rectangular in shape and a bit taller than a similarly sized gyuto or santoku. This nakiri comes in at an impressive 73mm height at the heel. So while it resembles a cleaver, it is more of a nakiri in terms of grinds, profile, and weight.
