Hitohira Imojiya TH | 175mm Nakiri Knife
Crafted in Seki-Gifu Japan, the Hitohira Imojiya TH line are a light, thin and sharp stainless steel knife. The grind on one side of these knives is aesthetically a little rough, performance wise however these knives cut very well (as good or better than knives costing twice as much). These are a great service knife for chefs, or a high performing home cook knife that won't break the bank.

Japanese Kitchen Knife | Nakiri (Vegetable Knife)
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.
