Watanabe knives need no further introduction. Ask any seasoned knife collector/ enthusiast about the best cutters they have ever tried and, more often than not, Watanabe (or Toyama), will be on the top of their list. Why? Simple answer: geometry and heat treatment. It's a knife that cuts so well because it's incredibly thin behind the edge, feels great in the hand, and holds its edge for a long time.

The Watanabe Pro nakiri is considered as the gold standard of nakiris in the kitchen knife community.
