We wanted to find a way to create high quality products while keeping the prices affordable for the general cooks out there. We believe we have achieved that having served many 10,000+ customers so far and more to come.

Here's why you shouldn't buy this knife
I've never heard of Yakushi Knives before, why should I trust you?
There are $40 knives out there on the market now, why should I pay more for this?
We even stumbled into $20 knives, it's crazy how low these can go for now. However we believe in spending more for higher quality products and materials, knives that will stand the test of intense cooking sessions while maintaining their edge. If you’re looking for the cheapest and low quality knife on the market, this knife might not be for you.
I don't need a set, I just need one knife.
If you're already equipped with most knife types in our sets, and most importantly if you're satisfied with them, then a set might not be for you.
Luckily, we also produce individual knives that you can look at in our Single Knives collection.

What is a Nakiri knife?
A Nakiri knife is a traditional Japanese-style blade that is most frequently used for slicing, dicing, and chopping vegetables. Its straight blade has a symmetrical edge, which promotes a particular cutting style. For celery stalks, carrots, onions, leeks, zucchini, and eggplant, the Nakiri is suited for an up-and-down motion, unlike a Chef Knife, which uses a rocking action.
What makes the Damascus Nakiri Knife special?
The Damascus Nakiri Knife has a magnificent, hand-forged blade made of Damascus that looks attractive, exceptionally strong, and long-lasting. High-quality Japanese 67-layer Damascus steel, noted for its excellent sharpness and edge retention, is used to create the blade. As a result, you won't need to sharpen your knife as frequently because it will stay sharp longer. Our Nakiri knife has the following features:-
• 7" Nakiri Blade
• Handmade Ergonomic Handle
• Design with Two Bevels

Herein are the tips for caring for and maintaining the Damascus Nakiri Knife:
Wash it right after use and dry it with a clean cloth to avoid rust.

Can the Damascus Nakiri Knife be used for both vegetables and meat?
Are there any safety precautions I should follow while using the Damascus Nakiri Knife?
When using a Damascus Nakiri knife, follow these basic guidelines:
