The Fujiwara Kanefusa Kurouchi Nakiri knife has unique “Black Forged” (Kurouchi) blade. The blade core is made from Hitachi White Steel No.2, which is sandwiched with soft iron.
The black-colored Kurouchi finish, which covers the upper soft iron part of the blade, is a special traditional coating that produces a unique luster and improved corrosion-resistance. However, while Kurouchi knives require less maintenance than typical carbon steel knives, please remember that the White Steel No.2 blade core and the soft iron portion of the bevel can still discolor or rust easily.
The knife comes with the popular “D-Shaped” traditional-style handle, which is made from magnolia wood and a water buffalo horn ferrule.
The Nakiri is a double bevel edged knife that is rectangular in profile and has a tall, thin blade. It is popular throughout Japan and is often used by home cooks for quickly and efficiently chopping, slicing or mincing vegetables and fruit. It is becoming increasingly popular with vegetarians.
