Hitohira TD Blue #2 Stainless Clad Kurouchi Nakiri 165mm Walnut Handle
The TD Blue #2 line is a perfect blade to get a taste of carbon steel without the full maintenance headache, thanks to the stainless cladding that protects most of the surface area from rust, while you can enjoy the long edge life and sharpness of blue #2 carbon steel.
We find this construction to be the best of both types of steel, and hope more people try out this amazing high-carbon steel! (one must keep clean and dry the whole blade often to prevent it from rusting, and a benign discolouration/patina will form regardless).
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!
