    Tadafusa Nashiji

    One of the great standard knife companies in Japan, is the Tadafusa company. They will never compete with Shigefusa in the artisan stakes, but their knives are well made and reliable.
    We're happy to have some of their Nashiji range in stock, which if you don't know, are in blue number 2 (Aogami) steel, with a nicely finished stainless cladding in a rustic finish.

    They're a double-sided grind and come with an oval magnolia handle with a contrasting red pakkawood ferrule. They look and perform a lot better than the price suggests.

    The link on the bottom is wrong. This one should work: Tadafusa Nashiji

    Damn, that cladding is stainless? I would have bought one of these had I seen that sooner. I thought it would rust.

    Wizard, I have a little 150mm petty from this line and the cladding is very stain resistant. The knife is nicely ground but did have to take back a little metal from behind the edge to get it to cut without wedging/cracking carrots. The wide beveled are nice and flat so the chore was easy. The Blue score gets very sharp and holds it a long time. I use mine as a honesuke/poultry knife. Its not the knife I'd grab for onions, herbs, garlic but for opening a box or breaking down small animals, works well.

    One thing you can give and still keep...is your word.
