Takada no Hamono Silver #3 HH Reika Nakiri 180mm Ho Wood Handle (Extra Height)
This product is currently sold out.
Mitsuaki Takada-san has trained under Hiroshi Ashi-san for years before setting up his own sharpening house, Takada Hamono late 2019. Takada-san has a unique sense of beauty in his patterns and profiles but what sets his work apart from other blades is his consistent convex grind that imbues both strength and cutting ability in perfect balance; additionally, his style minimizes ingredient stiction to the blade. He is a jolly man full of smiles, and we are proud to support his new venture.
He offers a few different finishes for his blades, and HH Reika is a identification for Takada's flower motif hammered finish.
Nakiri is a versatile blade that excels in processing large amounts of vegetables and the extra height for this compact length brings a ton of utility without sizing up. In addition, the rectangular shape is also very useful to pick up all the chopped bits!
