      Nakiri is considered a useful knife to cut without splitting or cracking relatively hard vegetables, popular among vegetarians. Nakiri is a double bevel edged knife to efficiently cut, slice, and mince vegetables. Though the nakiri is often mistaken for a mini Chinese cleaver due to its flat, rectangular, and thin blade, it cannot be used to cut tough materials like bones.

      Aogami Super (Hitachi Metals Ltd.) is one of the most outstanding Japanese carbon steels.

      In addition to containing more Carbon, Chromium, and Tungsten than Blue Steel # 1. It has excellent edge sharpness and edge retention but is also capable of attaining high hardness without being brittle. Consequently, many knife enthusiasts rate Aogami Super as one of the world's very best high carbon steels.

    Great Knives

    We bought a chef’s knife from their store in Kyoto. We liked it so much we bought a nakiri knife from them online. Surprisingly it arrived in 3 days and it was free shipping! These knives are dangerously sharp. As we only had them for a short time, don’t know yet how well they keep an edge.
