The Nakiri knife 16.5 cm Kasumi Tora is the Japanese version for vegetable chopper.
The Nakiri blade shape is traditional for Japanese vegetable knives and is mostly used for cutting all kinds of vegetables, 
fish, meat, slicing and dicing.

Opposite to the gyuto, the nakiri isn’t rocked like a chef's knife. Instead, with just a simple effortless push, it cuts with great precision vegetables of all kinds. 

In spite of its hatchet shape, this knife is not suitable for dissecting bones.

The blade of this model is made of stainless steel (AUS8) with a high content of molybdenum and vanadium, so that the knife does not absorb odors and does not transfer tastes from one product to another.
On the surface of the blade a solid oxide film is formed, which provides additional protection against corrosion.

The knife is equipped with a black cylindrical manoglia wooden handle of Japanese type, equipped with an O-ring for better stabilisation.


Kasumi knives are produced by Sumikama Hamono Cutlery in Seki, Japan.
Sumikama Cutlery specializes in producing knives from very advanced materials with the most advanced manufacturing techniques. 
Kasumi TORA knives are made of AUS8, a high carbon, low chromium stainless steel that has proven, over time, to be a very good compromise between toughness, strength, edge holding and resistance to corrosion.

The edge on a Kasumi knife is beveled at a 22° angle creating a very sharp edge.
