Ohishi Nashiji Silver #3 Gyuto 240mm Brown Pakka Handle
A line under the company Akifusa, Ohishi refers to the name of a small village near Mount Fuji where their knives are made. Coincidentally, Ohishi sounds very similar to “Oishi!” - a phrase people in Japan say to show their appreciation for a delicious meal. Carrying both Japanese and Western handled knives, Ohishi’s goal is to help people everywhere create “Oishi meals using Ohishi knives.”
Constructed from Silver 3 (Ginsan) stainless steel, these knives offer both durability and easy maintenance behind their high performing edge. Fitted with a water-resistant Pakka wood handle, these are excellent choices for those who want the thin edge and cutting performance of a Japanese blade combined with the in-hand sturdiness and weighted feel of a Western knife. For cooks in need of a reliable workhorse knife with minimum rust management, look no further than the Ohishi Nashiji line.
A chef's knife ('Gyuto' in Japanese) is the most versatile blade that can handle almost anything in the kitchen. Their shape and often generous edge length mean that whether it's cutting small tomatoes or portioning a large roast, you can do it with one blade. Most cooks have multiple chef's knives and it is not hard to justify getting one more when it has so much utility.
