A classic santoku shape with aogami steel on the core and clad in stainless steel for easy care. This knife also has a lovely distal taper for better balance.

 

SHAPE: Santoku. Named after the three best things to do with this knife - slicing, dicing and mincing. It is the classic veg prep knife with both good breadth and width. 

STEEL: Aogami (blue paper) 2 steel. This is very similar to white paper steel but with tungsten and chromium added to it which helps with edge retention and slows down rusting. The steel has then been hardened to 62-63 rockwell and wrapped in stainless steel to further ease maintenance.

FINISH: Nashiji or pear skin finish. This matt and mottled finish helps with food release and looks very rustic.

HANDLE: D-shaped Macassar ebony handles. These are designed for right handers but in my opinion a lefty should be ok. 

LENGTH: 165mm in length.

MAKER: Ohishi, Niigata City, Japan

BEST FOR: One knife for everything.

 

SAUNDERS SAYS: "This range of knives is both beautiful and functional. The nakiri was one of the knives that got me into this profession and I have now owned one for quite a few years now."

 

The spec:
