Although a nakiri looks like a chopping knife it is actually used for slicing vegetables and preparing garnishes. The thin blade is excellent for making a fine dice.
Zanmai Hexagon VG10 Series
MCUSTA excel in producing knives from VG10 steel. Unclad VG10 steel is very difficult to handle but the MCUSTA laser cut VG10 blades are exceptionally strong. These knives are all about the details:
- A single piece of hardened VG10 steel is attached to a hexagonal handle that gently transforms into a rounded hilt.
- The legendary MCUSTA hamaguri edge grind for superior sharpness.
- The stainless bolster is softened with rounded edges and attaches seamlessly to the handle with a decorative red spacer.
- A stainless steel pin secures the handle to the blade encircled by radiant luminescence.
Pakkawood is one of the great innovations of modern knife making but when polished it can be a little slippery. MCUSTA hexagonal handles are lightly textured so not only does it feel like real wood but no matter how wet your hands are the handle remains non-slip. Very comfortable and a pleasure to hold.
