Forged with a white paper steel cutting edge, this elegant knife is a great introduction to the world of Japanese kitchen knives. The simple Nakiri shape is excellent for the preparation of vegetables, and can be employed where ingredients need to be sliced exceptionally thinly.
Polished to a satin finish, the stainless steel cladding that forms the body of the knife will not be troubled by rust. However, as the cutting edge is a high carbon steel, it will need to be cleaned and dried after use, and for best results we recommend it be protected from moisture between uses with a light coat of camellia oil.
The laminated hardwood handle is stable and sturdy, and will give many years of service.
We recommend the edge be maintained with a Japanese waterstone, and have put together this knife in a set to get you started into the world of sharp edges and precise food preparation.
