Don't forget these...

Yukihiro Sakai is a young blacksmith who was trained under Nishida-san of Nishida Knives. With his knowledge of working on one of the purest forms of fine grain high-carbon steels (White steel #1), he has applied this to his own handmade crafted knives.

Very few blacksmiths create their own crafting materials, Yukihiro-san does. He puts in laborious work in doing so because he believes it makes a difference in the end product. He understands the importance of proper technique to limit carbon migration from the core steel to the iron cladding. These are the same reasons Takeda and Moritaka Hamono are famous, for understanding and applying this concept.

As such, Yukihiro Sakai uses White (Shirogami) Steel #1 for his kitchen knives. White #1 might be highly reactive, but it is unmatched for its sharpness.

These knives are hefty and forward heavy and most definitely a workhorse grind.

A nakiri will quickly become your go to vegetable prep knife. The flat surface along the length of the cutting edge means you can say goodbye to accordion cuts. Most nakiris sit at 165mm so consider yourself lucky to now have an extra 15mm for a total of 180mm of veggie cutting prep machine. Will you notice the extra 15mm? Absolutely! Pick one up and find out for yourself.
