Yasunori VG5 Damascus Nakiri 175mm. Nakiris are very popular knives in Japan among home cooks. They encourage push cutting and are easy to control. This knife has a nice stainless damascus cladding, hand engraved and uses stainless VG5 steel which is a above average stainless steel for kitchen knives. The main composition is C 0.8, Cr 15, Mo 0.4 & V 0.2, and the hardness is close to HRc 60 after being hardened and tempered.



It has a simple black pakka wood yo handle on it and has decent fit and finish for a knife in this budget price range. All and all it's a great bang for the buck Japanese knife and typical of what you would find in a Japanese knife shop (90% of these are made for the domestic market). It would make a great first knife for someone wanting to try a Japanese blade and it's also a good knife for learning how to sharpen with. It's laser thin and cuts really well.

      My first Nakiri , June 6, 2016
    Posted By: Parker - verified customer

    This blade is honestly pretty great. But I thought my summary would state why I only gave it 3 starsCons:It comes with what I would consider a 5/10 sharpness. After putting it to work on the Shaptons, it was amazingly sharp, perhaps easier to sharpen than any of my other knives. Not full tang, blade goes about halfway through the handle and stopsthe golden highlight on the handle you see is merely a Cheap sticker, not any kind of metal. It left a terrible residue when peeling off, but I removed it with a de-greaser easily. The blade is exceptionally light weight. This might not be a bad thing to many, but it isn't for me reallyPros:Once sharpened, this cuts like an absolute dream. I love the Nakiri profile. Seems to hold an edge wellThe blade is ridiculously thin, making precision work a breeze. I've never cut onions this quickly beforeIt actually minces well too Overall:You get what you pay for. This serves a purpose as a really good tool, but it's nothing fancy and lacking in some details
