Shun Dual Core 6.5" Nakiri w/ Saya
A nakiri is a traditional Japanese vegetable knife. The blade shape is both graceful and practical. It is a favorite with professional chefs and home cooks around the world. The nakiri's blunt tip makes the knife safer to use in the kitchen. At the same time, you can easily process foods with the blade's abundant slicing and dicing capabilities. Simply use a push cut by moving the knife down and forward while keeping the edge parallel to the cutting surface. The beautiful and versatile Dual Core Nakiri is a must-have knife, not only for plant-based cooking, but for a full range of other cuisines as well.
