Morihei Kunihide | 165mm Nakiri Knife (Aogami)

We don't see many knives at this price point crafted from Aogami (blue) steel, it's a great value high carbon option that we are very much enjoying. Finish is mid level, with some small scratches and marks from manufacture, more than worth it for the performance achievable.

* As our kitchen and chef knives are hand-made (some with natural materials like timber), small variation to size and colour may occur.

* High carbon steel kitchen knives will change colour over time and require a small amount of care to prevent surface rust. Even though this can easily be removed if it does occur, we recommend you hand wash and thoroughly dry after each use, do not use a dishwasher. For extended storage, coat in an oil like our Tsubaki..

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.
