Manufactured in Niigata City, an area famed for producing tools and knives of exceptional quality as well as the finest Sake in Japan, Tadafusa knives spares no expense when it comes the best quality materials and craftsmanship. Their knives offers fantastic performance and ergonomics catering to both home cooks and industry professionals.
The Azumagata knife is pretty much a Nakiri, it has bit more of a rounded belly that works great for rock chopping. The knife constructed using a Blue Paper core steel which is a high end, high carbon steel which can be heat treated to extremely high hardness levels meaning it can take on finer, sharper edges and maintain these edges for prolonged periods of time. The core steel is cladded in softer stainless steel with a rustic Nashiji finish which not only adds to the aesthetic of the blade but also aids in preventing corrosion. Made from thermally treated Chestnut with a black ferrule, the octagonal Wa handle is both comfortable and durable. 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.
