Nakamura knives have been established in 2015 in Chiba city the capital of Chiba prefecture by Mr Nakamura an experienced and famous sushi chef that had been working for years in Japan and Los Angeles. His immense experience in world’s best kitchens helped him create some amazing knives with remarkable cutting abilities.

Their trademark knives “Kaishin”, which are their high-end knives, are  forged and grinded by some of the most experienced craftsmen in Sakai-city at Osaka and they are well recognized for their beautiful profiles but also for their very thin behind the edge geometry.  “Kai” means a pioneer (魁) and “Shin” means a spirit (心).

The Nakiri  that looks like a small cleaver, is a specialized knife for vegetables. It is a double bevel knife and has a tall, thin blade in order to go through vegetables easily. It is a very popular knife throughout Japan as well as the rest of the world because its specialized profile makes the veggie preparation so easy. Feels nimble in the handle despite its size and its thin blade is designed for precise cuts. Perfect for chopping, slicing and push cuts.

A great veggie killer that features a beautiful pattern combining Damascus and Hammered styles and that needs minimum care as it is made from high carbon rust resistant steel. Western type Mahogany handle that fits all hand sizes and that most people outside Japan are used, will become your favorite companion in your kitchen.
