Hitohira Imojiya MZ VG-1 Nakiri 165mm Imitation Mahogany Handle
The Imojiya MZ VG-1 line is our budget-friendly series that delivers a great value without skimping on the cutting ability (just look at thinness at the edge in the 4th photo!). The thinness of these knives helps you go through dense root vegetables such as squash, large carrots, and sweet potatoes without much wedging. Just be sure to use gentle cutting pressure and knife techniques that do not involved twisting or aggressive mincing to avoid chipping.
We recommend these blades for any home cooks looking to seriously upgrade cutting ability without breaking the bank. It is also an amazing gift for many folks such as newly wed couples, students moving out, and professional cooks taking on a new venture etc.!
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!
