Made In continues to expand its kitchenware assortment with the latest addition serving to further sharpen its cutlery collection.
The company’s limited edition Nakiri knife is scheduled to debut on October 12 following a year in design and development. The full tang, fully forged knife is made by fifth-generation bladesmiths.
The Nakiri blade is a staple of Japanese cuisine with its straight, symmetrical edge that is said to be the right solution for chopping and dicing vegetables as it cuts straight without rocking like other knives that offer rounded shapes.
Each knife is individually numbered and is designed with a European olive wood handle with brass rivets. The unique appearance offered by olive wood, with its irregular veins, allows for each knife to be unique.
Made In’s Nakiri knife is fully forged, meaning each is made from a solid piece of stainless steel. In addition, they are also nitrogen treated, which hardens the steel allowing the knife to hold its edge longer.
The debut of the Nakiri knife comes just days after Made In unveiled its new bread knife that was designed in partnership with Chef Nancy Silverton.
Designed with a pointed and wide serration profile to provide a high-level of carving performance, the limited edition handle is made from ivory colored micarta, which is a resin and fabric composite. The three brass rivets were hand-selected by Silverton.
