Our 'Nakiri' knife is the perfect addition to your kitchen arsenal. Made with high carbon Japanese steel, it is tough yet nimble, for all of your vegetable chopping needs. 

PLEASE NOTE - For better or worse every handle is different. The images of handles change from knife to knife - the burl of wood is like the daily weather - hard to predict. 

Blade Length: 175mm (6.88") | Over All Length: 325mm (12.79") | Blade Thickness: 1.8mm (0.070") | Weight: 180g (6.34oz) | HRC: 58-60

High carbon AUS10 67 layer Damascus Japanese steel. 

"Na" meaning "Vegetable" and "Kiri" meaning "to cut" the Nakiri is the knife used for chopping vegetables. The Nakiri knife has a flat blade edge and may appear to look like meat cleaver however when you peer down at the spine of the blade you will notice it is a very slim blade built to chop through vegetables with speed and precision.

This Nakiri has been crafted by Koi Knives who specialise in adding the fusion of local wood with resin to match the blade. For the knife, the Nakiri knife, the green resin is poured in honour of the vegetables to be cut.

All knives are sent via Australia Post.

Care and maintenance instructions: Koi knives are made by a small team passionate about what they make. Once you buy the knife (unless damaged upon opening) you are responsible for looking after it. Please care for your knife with the passion that your knife is made with.

What not to do

Don't put it in the dishwasher or leave it in a sink full of water as this can lead to corrosion. We also recommend against cutting on a glass chopping board as this is terrible for the blade (can lead to chipping).

What to do

Koi knives have a high carbon concentration meaning they are harder at the edge. This means less honing is needed (i.e. sharpening with your rod at home or in the kitchen). With this type of steel you should have it sharpened by a sharpener (ideally on a whetstone to stop the steel heating). How often varies depending on usage however most people do it every 3-6 months.

To summarise, less honing and more stoning.

We source our animal produce from small family owned regenerative and organic farms. In a nutshell regenerative agriculture is a system of farming principles and practices that seeks to rehabilitate and enhance the entire ecosystem of the farm by placing a heavy premium on soil health with attention also paid to water management, fertiliser use, and more. It is a method of farming that improves the resources it uses, rather than destroying or depleting them. In addition to a long list of incredible benefits for farmers and their crops, regenerative agriculture practices help us fight the climate crisis by pulling carbon from the atmosphere and sequestering it in the ground.

Our farmers care about their animals and make sure they have a beautiful life right up until the moment they get killed. (Sorry - there's no avoiding that part). They roam freely over beautiful pastures, eat lush green grass and live pretty much stress-free. Animals bred and grown this way are so much better off than those in feedlots, so the more people who support this way of farming, the less animals there are in industrial-farmed feedlot situations, which is a horrible way for any sentient being to live.

Our non-animal produce is sourced by our local organic purveyor. We take the organic and spray free option whenever possible. Our commitment to sourcing the best ingredients is what we believe sets us apart from other ready-meal companies and makes them the most delicious, and the best for our customers health and the planet.

As a general rule of thumb, our meals are best heated from thawed. Frozen meals will take longer and can effect the tenderness of the protein.

From thawed: Pies will take between 30-45 minutes in the oven on 180C. Test the heat by sticking a knife inside and seeing if it comes out hot. Meals without toppings will take around 20-30 minutes on 180C.

Stove top is also an option for the meals without toppings. Simply pour contents into a pan and simmer on a medium heat.

From frozen: We recommend putting these on a lower heat (around 130C) so they can thaw and then bringing the temperature up after 45 minutes to 180C for another 30-45 minutes. Careful you don't burn the topping.

Our heating instructions are a guide only. Feel free to use your own common sense when heating your meals.

Mircrowave: Our containers are also microwave safe. Please remove the lid before popping into the microwave.
