Tsunehisa

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. 

The Knife

This is a fantastic starter Nakiri for the home cook or professional chef looking for an easy to maintain, high performing and good looking vegetable knife. The VG-10 steel won't rust or discolour even if it's not wiped down immediately after use and it has very good edge retention. The wavy damascus pattern blends beautifully with the tsuchime "hand hammered" finish and is further complemented by the brown pakka wood handle. The triple riveted handle ensures this knife will stand up to the toughest kitchen conditions and is comfortable to grip.

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.

 

Knife Care (Stainless Steel)

  • Although this knife is made from stainless steel we do still encourage our customers to keep their knives as dry and clean as possible.
  • NO DISHWASHER - the high heat will ruin the wooden handle.
  • Wash and dry by hand using regular dish soap and warm water using a none abrasive sponge or cloth.
  • Ensure the knife is dry before being put away for storage and ensure the edge of the knife is protected to avoid any unnecessary dulling.
  • Avoid Bones, Frozen foods, nuts and hard candies or anything other than fruits, vegetables and proteins.
