Warikome refers to the uniquely Japanese technique of blade making by laminating a strong central piece of steel with two softer outer layers. We have christened this three-piece collection Warikome because these blades embody aims we have been striving to achieve for a long time; super sharp edges that can endure for as long as modern Damascus blades whilst being easy to polish and re-sharpen at a price usually associated with single layer blades. The central core of VG10 super steel at an HRC 61 + / – 1 is harder than virtually any commercially available blade thus providing incredibly long edge retention. The two outer layers of high carbon stainless make this exceptionally enduring edge to be nearly as easy to polish and re-sharpen as the much loved but rather impractical shirogami (or high carbon steel that taints). So the Warikome Collection blades are within the reach of any truly enthusiastic home cook as well as most professionals. These comfortable easy to maintain knives represent exceptional value and will provide many years of excellent service.Naikiri: The edge of this shape is almost flat for the entire length and is the consummate knife for the preparation of vegetables. The wide rectangular blade is ideal for scooping and the best shape for vertical chopping of hard and dense foods like cabbages, celeriac etc. Function – Vegetable knife. For Slicing, Dicing and Mincing of vegetables. Normal length – 160mm to 180mm Tip: A few models have a completely flat edge with no curve so if you need to roll cut as well as vertically chop (to Julienne or Chiffonade herbs) select a model that has a slight curve towards the tip. This is the ‘uber’ knife for vegetables.
All knives come with one free sharpening. Avoid using on frozen foods and on bones.
