This right here is where witchcraft and metallurgy meet. Exclusive to Knifewear, the stainless damascus cladding steel sandwiches a core made of the hardest steel in the store. Semi-stainless, crazy hard and surprisingly durable, the Mugen HAP40 nakiri, is simply put, the best factory forged knife around. Professional cooks can go upwards of 8 or 9 months between sharpenings, while folks who enjoy sharp things at home can expect north of 2 years between sharpenings! Just make sure there are no bones, frozen food or bamboo cutting boards in your new knife’s future. Larchwood boards all the way, baby. For those that prefer a bit of heft in their kitchen knives, nothing — nothing — beats the Mugen HAP40 nakiri.
About the shape: A Nakiri is a vegetable knife. Under utilized 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 kisses the cutting board at once, you wont be turning the vegetable into an accordion. Accordion vegetables are still connected like a paper doll after your “done” cutting them. To truly understand the awesomeness of a Nakiri we recommend making onion soup your first night with the knife. The ease of chopping will blow you away.
