Product description

The Yoshida Hamono Kuro-uchi Nakiri Takefu is a versatile knife with a 165mm blade, perfectly paired with custom stabwood handles. This knife is designed for chopping vegetables on a cutting board, making it an excellent tool for kitchen tasks.

The Nakiri Takefu blade is wider than the Kyusu blade by 4mm and features a straight edge from the heel to the end, without a curved tip. This design allows for efficient chopping and slicing of vegetables with ease and precision.

The Kuro-uchi series knives are known for their traditional Japanese rustic style. Despite their affordable price, they offer exceptional quality as they are hand-forged. The blade is crafted from SUJ-2 steel, known for its impressive capabilities. With a hardness of 63-64 HRC, the blade delivers excellent sharpness and edge retention. Additionally, it is easy to sharpen when needed. It is important to take extra care of the blade by rinsing it well and drying it after each use. The name "kuro-uchi" refers to the unfinished appearance of the blade's top portion, which develops a protective dark patina over time.

The knife features a universal octagonal handle shape that provides a comfortable grip for both right- and left-handed users. The handle is crafted from natural maple wood, which undergoes a special stabilization process using resin. This ensures the handle's longevity and durability. During the stabilization process, color pigments are added, creating unique and eye-catching patterns in each handle. As a result, every handle is truly one-of-a-kind.

With the Yoshida Hamono Kuro-uchi Nakiri Takefu, you can enjoy the combination of a high-quality blade, rustic aesthetics, and a custom stabwood handle that adds a touch of uniqueness and comfort to your culinary experience.
