Product Description

“Our handmade Yoshihiro Mizu Yaki Blue Steel Kurouchi Nakiri knives are at the top of its class in performance. Mizu Yaki is a meticulous process of pure water quenching that draws out the hardness of refined steel while infusing enough resiliency to perform consistently in the most exacting of conditions. Exemplifying the most intricate techniques of forging, layering, and hammering, Kurouchi translates as Black Forged and is a traditional Japanese method of crafting high carbon knives. This unique style of forging offers an unpolished rustic finish. With a hardness on the Rockwell scale of 62-63, the inner core of Blue Steel #2 is prized for its high edge retention. One of the most sought after of knives and fast becoming a new essential companion to the popular chefs knife is the traditional Japanese vegetable knife known as the Nakiri. The Nakiri is reminiscent of a small cleaver and has a blunt tip that comes in handy for such things as cutting the eye out of a potato. This knife is cherished for its ability to chop through root vegetables to thinly slicing delicate tomatoes. From prepping greens for a salad to chopping vegetables for a main dish, the simplest of tasks are elevated with a handcrafted knife that is as beautiful as it is functional premium quality Japanese water stones. A good quality Japanese water stone not only is the best surface to sharpen and maintain the blade of your knife, but it is also the best tool to preserve and take care of the high quality steel that it is made of. ”
