JAPANESE KNIVES AND KNIFE SHARPENING
Tsunehisa knives come from various blacksmiths and factories from around Japan. They make many different style blades made from a range of steels. High performing and affordable knives they are a great entry knife into the Japanese knife world.
The Nakiri, “leaf cutter”, is a double bevel, thin bladded knife designed for vegetable cutting. The flat grind of the blade makes for good chopping board contact so no more “accordion” vegetables. This is not a cleaver.
This knife is made from Swedish stainless steel sandwiched between layers of Tsuchime, hammered steel. It has a western handle and has a bit of weight behind it.
