  • Gihei HAP40 Kazahana Nakiri 165mm

    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', pieces that are still connected by a thread 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! How great is that?

    About Gihei Hamono - Atsushi Hosokawa-san, a head knife maker at the Gihei Hamono, has a very forward-thinking perspective on knife making industry in the region. He loves innovation and new technology, especially new steel types. He may be the only one in the region who uses high-tech steels like HAP40 and ZDP-189. From the user's point of view, this HAP40 is a great knife. It will hold the edge super long.
