Hitohira Hinode | 165mm Nakiri Knife

Crafted in Niigata Japan by renowned blacksmith Mutsumi Hinoura, these elegant knives represent some of the best finish and performance for their price point. With a unique tsuchime (hammered) Shirogami #2 high carbon blade and ho wood handle, this would have to be one of our most recommended mid-level high-carbon chef knives.

Japanese Kitchen Knife | Nakiri (Vegetable Knife)

Nakiri knives are a specialist Japanese vegetable cutting knife that can also be used as your primary kitchen knife, depending on your cutting style.
Nakiri knives have a flat profile and tall blade height which aids in push chopping but does make rock style cutting a little uncomfortable. The Nakiri, like many western style chef knives has a double bevel grind, in contrast to the Japanese style vegetable knife, the Usuba, which is single bevel. Whilst a Gyuto or Santoku does do a good job at cutting vegetables, the larger flat bottom of a Nakiri or Usuba make the task much easier. The Nakiri is one of our favourite profiles, highly recommended.
