Hitohira MZ VG-1 Kitchen Knife Set Imitation Mahogany Handle (Gyuto 180mm, Nakiri 165mm, Pety 135mm)


The Imojiya MZ VG-1 line is our budget-friendly series that delivers great value without skimping on the cutting ability. 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 involve twisting or aggressive mincing to avoid chipping.

We recommend these blades for any home cooks looking to seriously upgrade their cutting ability without breaking the bank. It is also an amazing gift for many folks such as newlywed couples, students moving out, and professional cooks taking on a new venture, etc!

This set is made up of the three most useful knives in our opinion; a Gyuto, Nakiri, and a petty (utility) knife. A Gyuto is an all-purpose blade that is incredibly useful for any cook, Nakiri for all the vegetable chopping and dicing, and a petty (utility) knife can be used to cut small fruits, vegetables, and even some smaller cuts of meats. (and many many more things, like cutting through plastic wrapping from a grocery trip!)
