The menkiri is a Japanese noodle-cutting knife. The long, straight, razor-sharp edge contacts the cutting board completely to make cutting a folded sheet of fresh noodle dough almost effortless. Of course, in the same way that it can help you cut beautiful, even, delicious noodles, it is equally adept at cutting a full range of fresh, homemade pastas. And it could even provide excellent cutting control for slicing vegetables. This Shun Pro Blue knife includes a traditional Japanese wooden saya, or sheath.

The Shun Blue Menkiri is part of the Shun Blue line, developed in partnership with award-winning chef, Chris Cosentino. Internationally renowned for his "nose-to-tail" cooking philosophy, Chef Cosentino chose traditional Japanese blade shapes that are essential for preparing the proteins for which he is so well known, as well as a selection of all-purpose tools every kitchen needs. These exciting knives feature a carbon steel cutting core for a razor-sharp edge and quick re-sharpening. For easier care, the "blue" carbon steel core is sandwiched between two layers of mirror-polished stainless steel. The Blue Menkiri's beautiful grey PakkaWoodŽ handles are a traditional Japanese design that provides a secure and comfortable grip. The Shun Blue line makes this selection of classic Japanese culinary knives available to professionals and avid home cooks in the West.

Important Information:
The "blue" carbon steel on this knife allows it to take a razor-sharp edge and makes resharpening much easier, but it also requires additional care:

  • Never wash your knives in the dishwasher.
  • Make sure your knives are completely dry before storing them.
  • Use only very mild soap for cleaning, if you use any at all.
  • If you live near the sea coast or anywhere with salt in the air, your Shun Blue knives will require a light coat of oil to prevent rusting; food-grade mineral oil is recommended.
