This knife arrived from the manufacturer with a notch in the choil that is visible in the first picture. This notch should not affect the performance of the knife.

The Yoshimitsu Company is located in Nagasaki and was established in 1852 as a wheel blacksmith. They originally obtained their steel by using a Tatara and burning iron sand in charcoal for three days and nights. While still employing this method of smelting they also employ more modern steels in the construction of their knives.

The Yoshimitsu Blue #2 Nakiri 165mm is made from a core of Hitachi Blue Paper #2 carbon steel. The nakiri we are featuring here is longer than the advertised length, 173mm, and is about average for knives of this style. It is a very square blade with very little radiusing of the tip. The height of 50mmm is also average for the breed. It is a thin blade however, with a heel thickness of just 1.8mm. This gives the knife a very responsive feel while still having the stiffness associated with most nakiris. Grind is 50/50 for use by left- or right-handed users. It comes with a nice octagonal oak handle.
