"Nakiri" means vegetable knife in Japanese, and the Kikuichi GW Series Ginsan Sanmai Nakiri is ideal for slicing and dicing all types of vegetables. Use the straight blade to make push cuts quickly and easily.
Kikuichi bladesmithing began in the 13th century, creating Samurai swords for the Japanese emperor. Kikuichi has been making kitchen cutlery for 150 years, with the royal symbol of the chrysanthemum on all blades. The GW Series exemplifies the Japanese design principle of shibui, with a balance between simplicity and complexity. The three-layer sanmai blade features a Ginsan Silver-3 core with SUS440 stainless steel outer layer. The blade is sharpened to 61 Rockwell hardness for exceptional edge retention, and hand engraved with the Kikuichi chrysanthemum logo. The octagonal wa handle is made from walnut, with a water buffalo horn ferrule.
Hand wash and dry immediately. Made in Japan.
