Type of knife:
Nakiri knife means "cutting vegetables" in Japanese and is is well designed for this purpose. Nakiri has a very thin & almost straight blade which can cut foods evenly from heel to tip so it is easy to chop vegetables. Before Santoku knives become popular, Nakiri was generally used as a common kitchen knife for home cooks in Japan.

About steel type:
White Steel No.2 is a high carbon steel developed by Hitachi Special Stainless Steel. This steel is standard and most commonly used for Japanese style knives such as Sashimi and Deba knife for long time. White Steel No.2  gives a very sharp edge and has very good edge retention. It is also very easy to re-sharpen. It will rust if it is left wet or left in contact with something containing any amount of moisture, so need to wipe and dry completely after using. For longer storage protect with a film of oil to avoid lasting. Recommended for first time of Japanese style high carbon steel  knife users.
