A nakiri has a narrow, rectangular blade and is used for slicing vegetables. Unlike a usuba, it has a 50/50 sharpening angle and the slightly curved edge makes it possible to chop on a board with ease.
The blade is made from VG-10 suminagashi steel, which makes it aesthetically very pleasing. Compared with classical stainless steel, it resists wear and strain better, and the razor edge remains sharpened longer. This steel is also very resistant to oxidation and stains.
One of the most seductive qualities of this knife is the precision with which it cuts. It will become even more efficient with use, after it has been honed on a stone a few times.
The magnolia-wood handle is “D-shaped” to prevent it from slipping in the hand. It is painted black with red marbling, and then varnished for protection. This very successful finishing truly makes this petty with its contrasting-steel blade beautiful. It is a “must” in this range.
