Tojiro Japanese Double-Edged Shirogami Steel Nakiri - 165 mm

4.7 star rating 3 Reviews

Traditionally used to cut vegetables, the Nakiri has a straight blade that makes full contact with surfaces for smooth, fluid cutting motions. The knife's thin construction creates clean cuts and won't tear or damage delicate foods. We also love the authentic magnolia wood handles, made in the Japanese wa style with resin collars; the rounded handles come to a subtle point on their undersides, nestling in the hand for a more secure grip, even when the knife is wet.

Remarkably sharp and lightweight, the Shirogami Nakiri is made from a very pure, high-carbon steel renowned for its ability to take a fine razor edge and maintain its sharpness—Tojiro's knife is an amazing bargain for such a high-grade steel. Over time, the blade will also change color as it develops a patina, a protective layer against rust. It is reactive to moisture and acid, so we recommend cleaning immediately after use, especially when chopping foods like tomatoes or onions.
