Forged by a group of blacksmiths working out of Sanjo City, Japan. Ittetsu Nashiji are a great introduction to Japanese knives, or for the chef on a budget. Clad or sandwiched between two pieces of stainless steel the core Aogomi (blue) #2 steel provides some of the best edge retention you can find. 

Being stainless clad these knives will give you the edge retention and ease of sharpening of the Aogami #2 Core(Blue#2) with less fear of it rusting on you! While the exposed core steel is still reactive so these puppies need to be wiped down during use, should something go wrong and they get left wet it'll be much easier to clean them up thanks to the stainless cladding!

In this set we include:

Knife Care (Stainless Clad)

  • This knife is made from 3 layers of steel using a technique called Sanmai (Forge welding). It involves laminating a piece of Carbon steel with two pieces of Stainless steel giving the knife all the benefits of the carbon steel (Edge retention, ease of sharpening, cutting feel) and the Ease of Maintenance from Stainless steel. 2-3 millimeters of the carbon steel is exposed at the edge of the knife and is susceptible to rust and discouloration if not properly maintained.
  • Simply Wipe the knife with a damp cloth immediately after use to keep it from rusting or discouloring.
  • Never put your knife in the Dishwasher. The extreme heat will ruin the wooden handle.
  • Highly acidic ingredients (Onions, Tomatoes, Citrus) Will cause rust and oxidation to happen faster, thus the user must ensure the knife is wiped clean immediately after working with such an ingredient.
  • Should any rust form it can be removed using a rust eraser or a mixture of Baking soda and water to simply scrub it clean.
