Ginsan is a Japanese steel which is very fine-grained stainless steel and can have an edge sharpness and edge retention similar to some high-carbon steels. This steel is generally thought to be slightly easier to sharpen than VG-10 while also slightly more susceptible to rust due to the lower chromium content.
Japanese Nakiri knives have long, broad, and flat design allows for ease-of-use when implementing rocking, chopping, cutting, and mincing motions. The double bevel, wide blade allows cooks to prep whole cabbages with ease and the handle clearance allows plenty of room for your hand while working. Easy to work with, it is understandable why the Nakiri chef knife is first up when daikon, cabbage, or other vegetables reach the countertop.
