The world of Japanese kitchen knives is a highly specialised one, with many food groups having a purposely designed knife to perfectly fulfil its role. The Nakiri, a double bevel knife is a home use vegetable knife, with its thin profile and straight cutting edge is tailor made for making straight consistent cuts on a chopping board. Unlike other knives which almost exclusively have at least some degree on curve at the belly, the straight Nakiri really enables you to make light work of anything you throw in front of it, from thinly slicing red cabbage, to dicing carrot, to mincing garlic to breaking down large root veg, the Nakiri is your friend when it comes to vegetable prep!

    A note on carbon steel Like many others we at Community Cutlery favour carbon over stainless steel for its ability to take a keener edge and hold it for longer, for this privilege we need to care for our carbon products with a little more consideration, particularly when it comes to washing. Once you’ve finished with your knife we recommend giving it a quick wash and a thorough dry, as if left wet it will start to rust, surprisingly quickly. If this does happen then take a dry scourer and lightly give it a rub, another rinse and a good dry, it should come off with relative ease. With use you will also notice a light change in the colour of the blade, this patina is natural, beautiful and to be cherished, it’s like yo knife developing its own fingerprint!

    And for many reasons – Never put your knives in the dishwasher





    We ship Tuesday to Saturday using Royal Mail Tracked 24.

    All knives ship via an age verified service in accordance with The Offensive Weapons Act 2019, which will mean the postie will need you to be in to receive the delivery & to check your ID if you look under 25.

    The law also requires us to carry out a soft age check of the purchaser after checkout, this is done by an automated system that usually doesn't require your input, although we will need to contact you for proof of age if you fail, which can sometimes happen if you use a work address.
