Hitohira Futana SB Kuro Nashiji Nakiri 165mm Cherry Wood Handle
The Futana series is a great series for anyone getting into Japanese kitchen knives for elegant aesthetics and beautifully finished wooden handles. The S3 line is features a fully stainless blade for ease of maintenance, whereas the SB line boasts Blue Super carbon steel that will hold an incredible edge for a long while (one must keep clean and dry it often to prevent it from rusting, and a benign discolouration will form regardless).
We highly recommend the Futana blades as gifts for culinary students, professional cooks, young professionals moving into their first apartment, newly weds and more!
Nakiri is a versatile blade that excels in processing large amounts of vegetables and the rectangular shape is also very useful to pick up all the chopped bits!
