Elevate your cooking with this handmade Nakiri knife

The Homura Guren series is handcrafted by Master Blacksmith Mr. Doi. This handmade Nakiri knife is made of Aogami number 2 (blue steel #2) with excellent sharpness and durability.  The black hammered finishing method does not scrape the entire surface of the blade that has been hardened by quenching, but leaves the black portion of the side other than the blade. 

This handmade Nakiri knife needs to be cared for more than stainless steel as it will rust easier, water should be removed immediately. It is a fascinating knife that can be used widely from home to professional.  

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.

Chef knives, on the other hand, are usually longer and heavier, with thicker blades and curved edges. This design makes them better suited for tasks such as chopping meat or crushing garlic cloves. 

The Japanese Nakiri knife cannot be used to cut bone or frozen food, as it may chip.  You should also avoid using a dishwasher to clean it.
