Tsunehisa seeks to make great knives at affordable prices and while they aren't completely handmade (They are machine forged), many of the knife making processes are done by hand giving it the fantastic fit & finish, high performance, and fantastic consistency. These knives are fantastic for the home cook or the professional looking for fantastic performance, easy maintenance and beautiful aesthetics.
Nakiri are made to chop vegetables. The flat profile and tall blade make it ideal for an up and down chopping motion and the flat spine is great to use as a bench scraper to gather ingredients on the cutting board. This particular Nakiri is balanced forward ever so slightly making it a bit blade heavy which in our opinion is just what you want. Not super heavy, but not light these knives have great feel in the hand.
