Product information

Kikuichi’s Semi-Stainless series boasts an exceptional edge favored by professional chefs. Crafted from proprietary steel with a high carbon content, it offers performance akin to a carbon steel blade but with easier maintenance. Over time, it develops a beautiful patina, adding character to the blade. We recommend nurturing this patina for enhanced aesthetics and rust protection. Despite its strength and substantial build, the blade remains lightweight, ensuring effortless handling. Its fine-grained edge maintains sharpness exceptionally well.

The Nakiri knife, a staple of Japanese cutlery, is designed for vegetable work. Inspired by the traditional single-bevel Usuba, it features a thin spine, squared tip, and wide, straight profile, allowing for precise vegetable prep.

NOTE: Blade may rust if left wet, this is NOT a stainless steel.
