Hitohira Futana S3 Nakiri (Vegetable Knife) 165mm
The Hitohira Futana series is well known for its cutting performance and high-quality steel used.
This is the stainless variety.
This is a silver 3 steel knife (Ginsan)
One of my favourite steels for busy professional chef.
The best part about S3 steel is that is basically a stainless version of Shirogami (white) Steel.
S3 is a high Carbon knife that is a little more forgiving as far as maintenance are concerned.
In my experience the only drawback of silver 3 steel is that it doesn’t hold its edge quite as long as a blue or white steel (given good heat treatment), but the low maintenance makes up for it.
Perfect for a busy kitchen or home use
