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!

Made from an all stainless San Mai (3 layered construction), comprising of a V5 core for edge retention & durability and clad on either side with a softer stainless to make for a more robust cutting tool.
