Kuro Kuma Yonaka 165 Nakiri

Carbon steel knife for your vegetable prep.

Yonaka Japanese Knives

Kuro Kuma Yonaka are seriously sharp blades handcrafted from Blue #2 carbon steel. The finish is a smooth matt black and the edge sure to impress.

  • Made by hand, the colour of midnight
  • Walnut handles with morado wood bolster
  • Seriously sharp
  • Core of Blue #2 carbon steel, clad in matt black iron
  • 50/50 edge grind suitable for left and right handed users.
  • Note the care instructions for carbon steel


  • As the handle is natural wood, colour and grain of wood will vary from the photos.
  • If using a wooden saya you may scratch the blade from regular use. But that's all part of the experience of owning a black forged knife.
  • Owning a carbon steel knife is a commitment. The blade will change colour and tarnish with regular use. Carbon steel is prone to rust if you leave it wet, so to maintain it dry and oil the knife before putting it away. The black finish helps protect the blade from rust.

If you prefer a carbon steel knife with stainless steel cladding look at the Moriguchi Nero nakiri.
