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).

Petty is one of the most commonly used knives in the kitchen. A small, general-purpose knife used for peeling, shaping, and slicing fruits and vegetables, chopping herbs, and making garnishes that also can be used in handheld cuts.
