Self-explanatory, the blade is made so as to be most suitable for cutting vegetables. It is very capable of cutting vegetables into small pieces.
The series of Nakiri (vegetable-cutting) knife, Nashiji has a sandwich structure with stainless and steel (shirogami (white paper) No.1). The surface of the blade is called Nashiji because it looks like skin of Japanese pair and that prevents slices from sticking to the blade. This series of the knife is the most reasonable price. The steel (shirogami (white paper) No.1), which is white steel called shirogami (white paper), contains many carbon and that makes knife hard and high sharpness cutting blade, and the raw materials are made by Hitachi Metals, Ltd. You can choose western handle or Japanese handle.
Knife is forged/ground extremely thin from the primary bevel resulting in high performance. The knife is around 53 mm tall, 2.5mm spine thickness at the heal, and around 160mm along the cutting edge. I asked for a finger rest and it is very comfortable in a pinch grip. The steel (white#1 HRC 65) is some of the best available on the market. OOB needs a finish sharpening as micro chips can occur out of the box because of the high heat treat and acute bevel that is applied. It just needs a few passes on a higher grit stone(2000-8000) and the micro chipping issues are gone. Overall, great performer with the ability to handle heavy vegetable prep to detail work in a professional setting. The stainless Nashiji finish is very durable, low maintenance, aesthetically pleasing, low friction, releases food with ease, and full of character. I would not hesitate to order again because customer service is great and Mr Fujiwara is simply one of the best blacksmiths out there!!! Thank you very much!!!

Not every day but when used particularly with fish it is perfect
Fantastic knife. I needed a short and tall blade to deal with garlic, herbs and spring onion...this one delivers every time as long as you know how to look after it.
