Daitoku Blue #2 Nakiri 165mm Walnut Handle

Daitoku knives are one of the most unique blades even for us. The almost-indigo coloured rustic kurouchi finish along with the hand-carved walnut handles with brass bolster make for such an incredible aesthetics. 

Not only are they beautiful, the hand-forged, hand-sharpened carbon steel blades retain their sharpness for a long time without being difficult to sharpen using whetstones (we recommend the Imanishi Arashiyama  #1000). We do, however, caution the users to keep these blades dry as often as possible to prevent possible rusting. As for all carbon steel knives, a beautiful patina will form overtime.

Nakiri is a versatile vegetable knife that excels in processing large amounts of vegetables and the rectangular shape is also very useful to pick up all the chopped bits!
