Nakiri – This is the definitive Japanese shape for the preparation of vegetables. Whether slicing the softest tomatoes, dicing the hardest swede or mincing ginger to the consistency of a smooth pulp this blade will transform any culinary chore into a ‘Zen’ experience. The very straight edge profile with its flat front means that when chopping round layered vegetables like onions the resulting cut pieces are all the same size and will melt evenly during cooking.
Be prepared for an increased amount of vegetables in your diet when using this knife as preparation becomes such a pleasure that it is difficult to stop slicing, chopping, dicing and mincing any vegetable you can get a hold of!
These stunningly beautiful, scalpel sharp stainless 63 layer Damascus blades have exceptionally keen enduring edges whilst being easy to re-sharpen. The central core of the 63-layer JKC Damascus Collection steel is a High Carbon Chrome Vanadium (HCCV) Stainless Steel. HCCV is a recent addition to the selection of Super Steels used by Japan’s most revered smiths in the manufacture of outstanding culinary knives. JKC 63 Layer Damascus Collection blades are hardened to 58:60 HRC providing very enduring edges, which are incredibly easy to resharpen. The 63 layers imbue the blade with a truly eye-catching wood like rippled pattern; this intricate complex process not only creates an aesthetically delightful effect. More importantly, layering adds immense strength thus facilitating a thinner, yet stronger, and therefore sharper blade. The handles are composed of Ebony black Pakkawood; a laminated hard wood which is silicon injected for optimum longevity and hygiene. Pakkawood is reserved for the finest knives. The handles are secured to the tang by three steel rivets. Traditional handles have seen resurgence amongst professional chefs who find them supremely ergonomic and durable.
