Kikuichi Warikomi Gold Nakiri

Our Price: $169.95


Kikuichi Warikomi Gold Nakiri:
  • Blade Length: 6.7 in. (170mm)
  • Handle Length: 122 mm
  • Weight: 6 ounces
  • Handle Type: Wood (Mahogany)
  • Bevel Type: Double Bevel
  • Steel type: VG-1

  • 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.
