Masutani V10 Nakiri Purchase options

Nakiris are, despite looking a bit like a meat cleaver meant for chopping veg, they have a very flat cutting edge and the height enables good nuckle clearance. Perfect for a push/pull cutting motion.


Out of the box, the knife benefits from Masutani-san's 30+ years of skill and experience as a sharpener and although you could get them sharper with a quick hone or pass over a whetstone we think for the excellent price point they're plenty sharp already and would be great in any kitchen. 


The stainless cladding combined with the black pakkawood handle combine to create a good looking knife with a unique pattern finish. It's subtle but striking.

Value for money

Exceptional. You're getting a good knife for the money here and the fit and finish are what you'd expect from a very experienced blacksmith.
