Shirogami, or White steel, is a carbon steel which achieves superb sharpness and excellent edge retention. As with any carbon steel it will react to moisture left on the blade, so keep it clean and dry to avoid the risk of corrosion. Do that and you will be rewarded by the increased performance over similarly priced stainless steels.

The Nakiri has a straighter blade perfect for vegetable work with a design to make up and down chopping easier. It's a great knife for tasks such as julienne, brunoise or allumette. Due to its strength and weight it is also an excellent choice for chopping large hard vegetable such as squash or pumpkin.

Do not use the knife to chop hard materials such as bones or frozen items unless the knife is made for that specific purpose. Always ensure you keep your knife clean and dry, and sharpen it as required to prevent a dull edge.
