Product Description

About the Nakiri

Japanese Nakiri knives are mostly used for cutting vegetables. They feature a thin and wide blade and squared off tips. As it is designed for chopping veggies, the knife has a straight blade that can cut through long items (think eggplants, carrots) as well as make super thin slices out of cucumber, bitter gourd, tomatoes and the likes. Its double bevel makes it perfect for both left and right-handed use. 

Thanks to their straight blade, Nakiri are ideal for julienne, brunoise allumette and other precision knife cuts for vegetables.  Also a great tool for cutting into very hard skinned produce like pumpkins and squash.

Maintenance

Like most equipment, knives need a little love and care. You need to sharpen them regularly and depending on the type of steel, dry them immediately after use. These are 3 general rules you should follow:

      1. Don’t put your knife in a dishwasher, ever.
      2. Store your knives either on the magnetic knife stripknife stand, or sheathed in the utensil drawer.
      3. Don’t slide your knife, blade down, across the cutting board to clear away what you just chopped.
