About the Shape - Under utilized in the western kitchen, the nakiri’s flatter blade is meant for the push/pull chopping of vegetables. Since the entire flat edge of the knife touches the cutting board at once, you wont be turning the vegetable into an 'accordion', still connected like a paper doll after you've cut them. The added weight of the blade allow it to fall through food more easily while you chop, so the knife does more of the work for you!

About Fujimoto Nashiji - The Fujimoto Nashiji achieves a great balance in knife making; extremely high performance, along with minimal maintenance. The Aogami #2 (#2 blue Steel) carbon steel core of the blade has been clad (wrapped) in stainless steel. This allows you to get the performance of traditional high-carbon steel, but only the edge of the knife requires the extra attention and drying that carbon steel asks of you, not the whole knife. This type of construction is our favourite type of knife construction because it gives a long lasting edge and also easier maintenance than a full-carbon steel knife.

The finish on this line is called nashiji, named for its resemblance to the skin of an Asian pear. The scorched chestnut handles offer a classic rustic look, and the scorched finish on the wood lends durability to the handle.
