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!
About Yu Kurosaki -It’s best to think of Kurosaki-san as an Anakin Skywalker of sorts, he’s incredibly talented and half the age of his colleagues. Imagine how great his knives will be when he’s Obi-Wan’s age. He never felt that he was a natural blacksmith until he sold his first knife and saw the joy it brought to the customer. Over the years, Kurosaki san has continually experimented with different steels, handles, finishes and shapes. He is best known for his one-of-a-kind flashy pieces, but also has a couple of amazing staple lines at Knifewear.
