About the shape - Underutilized in the western kitchen, the nakiri’s flat 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 won't be turning the vegetable into an 'accordion', still connected like a paper doll after you've cut them. The added weight of the blade allows it to fall through food more easily while you chop, so the knife does more of the work for you! 

Haruyuki nakiris are a good height and weight for any average-sized user. 

About Haruyuki Kokuto - Named for Shochu made from brown sugar, the Kokuto gives you the elegance and style of a traditional Japanese knife with none of the maintenance. Ginsan Stainless Steel functions like high-carbon steel so it sharpens easily, and take a 'crisp' edge like high-carbon steels. The handle is made from Yew wood, which has great durability with a gorgeous finish. These blades are a great way to start if you're looking for your first Japanese knife!
