A brilliant little petty, adept both in the hands and on the board.

 

SHAPE: Petty. Generally the smallest knife in a cook's arsenal. Perfect for intricate work.

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: 130mm in length.

MAKER: Ohishi, Niigata City, Japan

BEST FOR: Those wanting one of the best cutting steels on the planet at an acceptable price.

 

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: 

BLADE LENGTH: 136mm 

OVERALL LENGTH: 265mm  

BLADE HEIGHT: 30mm  

THICKNESS AT HEEL: 3.2mm 

 

These knives are hand-forged so there may be slight variations in measurements and finishes.
