"Na" meaning "Vegetable" and Kiri meaning "to cut" the Nakiri is the knife used for chopping vegetables. The Nakiri knife has a flat blade edge and may appear to look like meat cleaver however when you peer down at the spine of the blade you will notice it is a very slim blade built to chop through vegetables with speed and precision.

The Bunka knife is a utility knife that is crafted from strong, thick Japanese steel. The hammered side of the blade also reduces stickiness from starchy vegetables like potato and pumpkin making it the perfect knife for many types of preparation.
All blades are high carbon AUS10 67 layer Damascus Japanese steel.
The handle wood was sourced from McLaren Vale, the wine region around 40km South of Adelaide. Exactly where we cannot say (our secret shed) then stabilizes and infuses the handles with resin before inserting on top of the blade. We choose from the trees in the area - olive wood, Shiraz grapevines whatever needs to be chopped.
The Damascus steel (AUS10) comes from its Japanese source, Aichi (not far from Nagoya) and it is finished with an ultra-sharp blade edge to assist chopping and slicing.

A very good question. Here's a short answer.
What not to do?
Don't put it in the dishwasher or leave it in a sink full of water as this can lead to corrosion. We also recommend against cutting on a glass chopping board as this is terrible for the blade (can lead to chipping).
What to do?
Our knives have a high carbon concentration meaning they are harder at the edge. This means less honing is needed (i.e. sharpening with your rod at home or in the kitchen).
With this type of steel you should have it sharpened by a sharpener (ideally on a whetstone to stop the steel heating). How often varies depending on usage however most people do it every 3-6 months.
To summarise, less honing and more stoning.
If you need help finding a sharpener near you, give us a bell and we will do our best to assist.

Australia is easy. We charge 10% GST (which is included in the price).
