Nakiri Blue steel #1 Kurouchi Shitan Handle 165mm

H046

Regular price¥27,800
/
Mainly used for vegetables with a flat, rectangular blade and a flat tip. Most user-friendly knife with its thin and wide light blade. Best for cutting Napa and cabbage into strips. Also suitable for peeling, rotary cutting, shaving, and making garnish.

Blue Steel #1 is similar to Blue Steel No.2, but the additional Carbon and Tungsten / Wolfram result in even better edge retention and toughness. The steel is perhaps most commonly seen in high-grade Japanese traditional single-bevel edged knives.

Kurouchi Finish, the unprocessed (black) part on the top side of the blade has already developed a dark patina, which protects the blade and gives it a traditional Japanese look.

FIVE STARS A SAMURAI EXPERIENCE!

Well made tools make for well made craft

A blade that cuts so clean that fruits and vegetables can be put together as whole again. When cutting proteins with a pull or push stoke cuts are clean an ribbons are easily made. I have been pleased by the knives I have purchased made; I plan on buying more as they are tools for the deft and ambitious hand that holds court in the humility of the “way” of hand craft.

Product Features

Handmade Forging

With the traditional forging process, the molecules of the iron material are finely tuned, leading to the completion of a "living kitchen knife" that breathes.

Durability

The process of heating and forging each material for mold making is repeated three or four times to quickly shape the blade and create durability before the carbon is released from the steel causing it to lose its original strength.

Sharpness

The blade is the most important factor in achieving the best possible sharpness. It is polished in our own blade factory to produce uncompromising sharpness.

Handle

The highest priority is placed on sturdiness, a sense of luxury, and a shape that is easy to grip and does not cause fatigue even after long hours of use.
