Tadafusa Nashiji Blue #2 Hiraki 165mm Maple Handle
The Tadafusa Nashiji 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!
The Hiraki from Tadafusa is a great utility blade with versatile functions. It can be used for any task that you would normally use a utility blade PLUS you can do light butchery, as well. We find this length can be a great length for professionals during service in a tight kitchen, too. We highly recommend this unique blade for any cook looking for a versatile blade with a sturdy feel and food separation.
