  • Kikuichi's Warikomi line uses high quality VG-1 sometimes known as V-Gold steel. This VG-1 (Gold) Steel is not only rare but it is highly prized due to its properties; will hold an edge (comparable to VG-10), it is tough and will chip less than a damascus clad knife, and is stain resistant. Warikomi is made San Mai style (manufactured with a soft stainless steel) like most VG steel knives; this is because the steel is so hard it would be difficult to thin and shape the blade without the softer steel coat. A Nakiri is a great vegetable and fine cut knife, the flat thin blade is ideal for fine garnishing cuts, this knife is often used to unravel cucumbers and radishes for Sushi Rolls Kikuichi makes their knives in Nara, Japan.
