This Enso Hand-Forged Aogami Super Nakiri features a unique rectangular shape and slightly upturned edge, making it the perfect tool for precisely push-cutting all kinds of vegetables. The Nakiri's blade shape also allows its length to remain consistent after years of sharpening. Nakiri knives are also known as "nakiri bocho", a Japanese-style knife used for chopping vegetables. Characterized by its straight blade edge and squared off tips, the nakiri knife allows you to cut all the way through to the cutting board without having to use a horizontal push or pull.

Each Enso Hand-Forged Aogami Super knife has a slightly different appearance and size because the blade is hand-forged and the handle is teak wood. The double-bevel edge is more robust than a single edge and less prone to chip or nick because both sides of the edge are equally supported, so the hard core of steel is supported on both sides. Each Enso Hand-Forged Aogami Super knife is made by hand using a traditional free forging technique inherited by Japanese swordsmiths.
