About the Shape
A Nakiri is primarily designed for slicing vegetables. Unlike other knives, the Nakiri’s flat blade ensures an even and complete contact with the cutting board, preventing accordion cuts. For a firsthand experience of its excellence, try chopping onions. You'll be amazed by its efficiency and precision.
About Tokushu Knife Kurouchi-Forged
The Kurouchi-forged line from Tokushu Knife is the ideal choice for novice chefs or knife enthusiasts. It offers high-performance carbon steel, a captivating appearance, and an attractive price point. Its name, derived from the rough, oxidized "kurouchi" finish from forging, captures its essence. Lightweight with an oak handle, it offers precision and power.
Shirogami (white) carbon steel, renowned for its sharpness and durability, forms the core of this knife. It's laminated between softer layers of carbon steel. Being non-stainless, it demands careful handling.
