The Nakiri is a traditional Japanese vegetable knife for home cooking. It is short and easy to handle. The width of the blade allows you to scoop diced food from the chopping board and transfer it into the pan. Less known in western countries, the Nakiri is as terrific performer and a pleasure to use, not to mention safer than most with a straight square tip. Please note: Like all Japanese knives, the Nakiri is thin and should never be used as a meat cleaver to cut through bone.
Handmade Masakage Kurosaki Megumi knives are made of VG-10 steel. The damascus cladding gives a unique hammered design and hardness to each blade and makes the edge stay sharp for quite long time. As with most Masakage knives, the heel of the blade is rounded to allow a more comfortable use of the pinch grip.
The line has been named after its young master blacksmith Yu Kurosaki, who works in Takefu Village.
Its octagonal handle is made of American Cherry wood and black water buffalo horn.
