Product Description

Okubo Kajiya is unique, in more ways than one.

For a start it's the one and only blacksmith operating in Tokushima Prefecture on Shikoku Island (Japan's fourth largest), but really, that's just incidental. For us what sets them apart is the low output - only three to four knives per day. The reason so few knives are produced is that Okubo san and his son are true artisans, forging warikomi blades one by one using the old ways. Most that emerge from their elven-like forge are for customers waiting for their particular Okubo Kajiya blade, forged and sharpened especially for them. 

Unlike many knife makers Okubo san places a great deal of emphasis on final sharpness, and if you decide to have one of his knives forged and sharpened especially for you, you can be guaranteed a highly satisfying level of craftsmanship and exemplary cutting feel. The nakiri you receive will be amazingly sharp out of the box, beautifully executed and hand-honed close to its potential.

Product Reviews

  1. Diamond in the rough

    Posted by Simon Anstey on 9th Mar 2022

    Beautiful nakiri, sharp as a razor straight out of the box. We all try the edges on paper and this edge sliced through nearly silently. Lovely weight, just a little forward, giving a nice cutting pitch. The finish of the handle contrasts beautifully with the rough karouchi; the hands of the maker are clear in the metal. Great communication and service from Michael at Knife Japan. Thanks.

  2. Excellent Nakiri

    Posted by Anders Olsson on 19th Dec 2020

    I have quite a few Nakiris but this one is truly excellent. Well balanced, sharp and a very good food release. As always the service from Michael is super and delivery very fast.
