HINODE SHIROGAMI 2 KUROUCHI HAMMERED NAKIRI / VEGETABLE KNIFE 165MM
Forged in Sanjo, Nigata prefecture by Mutsumi Hinoura. The Hinoura family are renowned for their craftmanship and Mutsumi Hinoura certainly does not disappoint with this attractive Nakiri (Vegetable knife). Made from shirogami 2 clad in soft iron with a stepped grind, this classic construction is ideal for the sharpening enthusiast as it facilitates easy thinning. The deep tsuchime finish and the accent on the tip are nice design features adding personality to this series. This series is thin behind the edge with a nice kasumi finish with really bright hagane. An excellent cutter with a good standard of fit and finish.
