Zakuri 165mm Blue Super Kurouchi Nakiri

  • The Zakuri 165mm Blue Super Kurouchi Nakiri is a great example of what a nakiri should be like. Light and thin, with a comfortable handle. Blue Super is a great knife steel. It is the best balance of ability to get sharp and edge retention in high carbon steels. The 165mm length is a good size nakiri for both home cooks and pros alike. This knife has a kurouchi finish but is not stainless, so it will patina with use. If not cared for properly, it may rust.
