Hoehler Handmade – Nakiri
Hoehler Handmade – Nakiri

David Hoehler is a local South African knife Artisan who has been making knives for close to six years and has, up until recently, started making knives full time from his workshop in Sheffield Beach on the North Coast of KZN. David has worked as a professional chef for 8 years and it is for that reason that he has a deep love for kitchen knives thus it becoming his speciality. He uses Sandvik 14c28n stainless steel for his knives which can be heat treated anywhere from 55-62 HRC making it an incredibly versatile steel with great edge retention and corrosion resistant properties. He uses an array of high quality, laminated and dyed blanks made from Birch for the Handles. These handles are incredibly strong as laminated Birch is mostly used for Gun Stocks.

About the Nakiri

 

Under-utilized in the western kitchen, the Nakiri’s flat blade is meant for the push/pull chopping of vegetables. Since the entire flat edge of the knife touches the cutting board at once, you won’t be turning the vegetable into an ‘accordion’, pieces that are still connected by a thread after you’ve cut them.

The added weight of the blade allow it to fall through food more easily while you chop, so the knife does more of the work for you.

The Nakiri blade shape is a traditional Japanese knife shape, designed for the task of cutting vegetables – a knife that will be appreciated in the hands of a prep cook with mountains of veggies to prepare every day.

Recently, many Nakiris find their way into home kitchens – it’s a perfect knife for vegetarians and veggie lovers.

Sakai Kikumori – Nakiri
Sakai Kikumori – Nakiri
Sakai Kikumori
With a passionate devotion to knife-making as well as working with some of the most skilled craftsman in Japan, Sakai Kikumori has been making cutlery of incredible quality and performance since its inception in 1926.
The kikumori Nakiri is constructed using a core steel of Blue #1, a high carbon steel well known for its edge retention abilities and ease of sharpening. The blade is heat treated to 64 HRC, making it an incredibly hard blade capable of holding very fine, extremely sharp edge for prolonged periods of time. The core steel is cladded in softer Iron with a Damascus finish and the handle is made from Ho Wood with a Buffalo Horn ferrule.
The Nakiri, an under-utilised knife in Western kitchens however massively popular in Eastern kitchens, has a straight blade profile which is optimal for push cutting through vegetables and the added weight of the blade also results in it falling through food with less resistance. The Nakiri makes quick work of mountains of vegetable prep wether you are at home or in a professional setting.

 

Care Instructions:

  • Wash and dry the blade by hand immediately after use. Dishwashers are very bad for all knives.
