The Nagomi Maru Series, made in Seki, Japan, a town long known for its cutlery due to centuries of Samurai sword-making. Meticulously crafted by a cutlery master in the town. A full tang solid stainless steel is made from an ice-hardened 440 high carbon stainless steel. The entire blade is soaked into the -170°C degree Nitrogen liquid to have blade extra flexibility and longer edge retention plus non-rusting properties.
The goal of Nagomi Maru series is to promote Harmony and Comfort through a unique design element, is to simplify the food preparation experience which will ultimately result in exceptional meals to be enjoyed by yourself, your family, and friends. Make you fun to cook with these knives.
The classic slicer. Long and thin, this is the best shape for the preparation of any flesh (meat or fish – cooked or raw) without bones. The slim profile presents a smaller are of contact with the flesh and thus reduces the strength of the vacuum between the blade and the food resulting in a smoother and easier cut.
Function – Slicing and carving of meat and fish without bones.
Normal length – 240mm to 300mm (a few smaller 180mm and longer 330mm are available)
Tip: Whilst the 240mm or the 270mm lengths are the most popular select the longest length you are comfortable with. The longer the blade, the lesser the pressure required to cut the food and thus increase the ability to cut thinner slices. As this is one knife that is often taken to the table for carving in front of the diners, apart from the functionality, aesthetics should be an important consideration.
