Yoshihiro VG1 Stainless Steel Nakiri



In Osaka Sakai City, Japan, "Goh Umanosuke Yoshihiro" crafts the Western-style Nakiri, featuring a core made of VG1 steel, forged through the traditional method of three-layer forging.

VG1 is known for its highest sharpness, excellent hardness, and high resistance to dullness within the stainless steel family.

It's worth noting that the blade edge is meticulously honed to an extremely thin edge, ensuring durability and sharpness. Being a double-beveled symmetrical blade, it maintains remarkable durability and practicality even with a thin edge.

The Nakiri has a flat and wide blade, making it convenient for chopping various vegetables and fruits into chunks or strips, and it's particularly suitable for slicing cakes and pastries.

On the other hand, the straight edge of the Nakiri allows it to be used as a utility knife for peeling and julienning radishes. A Nakiri is an essential, versatile tool suitable for both professional and home use.

Handle: Western style black Pakkawood handle
This product comes with a Magnolia wood Saya.

How to Maintain Stainless Steel Knives

After use, simply wipe the knives dry to remove any moisture. Do not use a dishwasher to clean your knives. If you plan not to use the knives for an extended period, it's advisable to apply a thin layer of protective oil.

Ensure you use the knives correctly, as they are designed for specific functions such as slicing, chopping, or handling frozen foods. Avoid using them beyond their intended purpose, as this can lead to damage.
